Eric Delaney and WYJO

Eileen Smith kindly sent me this magnificent photo of the late Eric Delaney performing with the Wigan Youth Jazz Orchestra.
What a player, what a character and what a great loss!

I remember that gig. You can just see my head popping out of the tom tom. He was great to work with and he swung hard.
