Bebop Spoken There

More Charlie Smith and north east jazz memorabilia from Jean.

Well, I never knew that Charlie Smith played bass with the Emcee Five at one time. And where was the Opus 3 Club? Was it  a forerunner of the Opus 4 currently operating from the Traveller's Rest nr. Darlington?
Who were the mystery men? Freddie Ands, drums, Frankie Martinelli, alto & tenor and Joe Patterson, tenor?
Probably from the early '6os. Thank you Jean.
Lance.
