Bebop Spoken There

Clare Teal: "If you're brought up in a working-class family, you haven't got money for records so everything you get hold of, you treasure, learn to love, and I loved those Ella tapes." - (Radio Times 23-29 January 2021)

The Things They Say!

Name these musicians.

The death yesterday of Kenny Ball prompted Colin - our man in Hong Kong - to send this photo of a very young Kenny Ball. The "CG" initials on the shirts suggest the band is Charlie Galbraith's but who, asks Colin are the others?
Colin also sent this clip of Kenny Ball playing at Ned's back in 1977.

Hi! I know this was posted years ago, but I would love to be able to view the photo, which isn't showing on the blog at the moment. I have reason to believe that my great- grandad, Dave Jones, may be in the photo, and would love to see it! Thanks in advance.

Thanks for responding so quickly, and what a great early photo of Kenny Ball! I don't think any of those musicians is Dave Jones, but thanks anyway!
