A touch of Nostalgia

Brian Littlefair, a former colleague of mine at J.G.Windows Music Store, sent me this reminder of the old Down Beat Club in Newcastle. Interestingly, this was in the days when what ultimately became the Emcee 5 were still the Emcee 4 - trumpeter Ian Carr had yet to team up with brother Mike (pno/vbs), Gary Cox (ten), Malcolm Cecil (bs) and Ronnie Stephenson (dms).
Early 1960's I guess.
