Bebop Spoken There

RIP Peter Appleyard.

Sad to report the death of drummer/vibes player and composer Peter Appleyard. British born but Canada based Appleyard played with Benny Goodman, Sinatra, Tormé, Ella and many others. I seem to recall hearing him at Newcastle's Tyne Theatre with, I think Peanuts Hucko although I could be wrong.
He died yesterday (July 18) aged 84.
Rest In Peace.
