Bebop Spoken There

Anat Cohen: "With the tenor, it's so iconic with jazz. With the clarinet, I can improvise, but it doesn't have to be called jazz." - (DownBeat July 2019)

RIP Stan Nicholson

Sad to report the death, suddenly, of Stan Nicholson. Stan played lead guitar with Rowlands Gill Based group the Silver Dollars who had a minor success with a single - Rainbow - back in 1965. More recently, Stan switched to bass guitar and could be heard with Mick Hill (later Miles Watson) and the Jazz Esquires at the Porthole, North Shields.
In the photo, taken in 2012, Stan is sitting below the mirror.
Sadly missed.
Stanley Nicholson's funeral is on Monday January 27. 11.15am at Newcastle's West Rd. Crematorium.
Lance.
