Charlie Smith remembered.

Delighted to receive this photo of the great Barney Kessel with local guitar hero the late Charlie Smith. Thanks go to Charlie's daughter Jean for sending me the photo.
Jean also sent me a photo of the Peter Fielding orchestra which has been oft mentioned on here recently.

PS: Maurice Summerfield has sent more photos of Charlie with Barney Kessel, Ike Isaacs, Maurice and a mystery big band. Maurice actually took the photo on the left of this post at the Imperial Hotel Jesmond.
