Memorabilia

Thanks to Dr. Keith Armstrong for this collection of memories but, with the exception of Ellington and Ornette,, what years were they from?

The Coleman Hawkins was 1967 - I was there in the middle of the front row, aged 14! Still got my ticket somewhere, too.

By a process of elimination the Armstrong concert would be the first tour in 1956. The second tour was Feb.- March 1959 and the third April - May 1962. There is no date on my fist tour programme but the price is about right as I remember paying £1 5s for a ticket at the City Hall.
