Very sad news indeed, I did learn to read music sitting next to Malcolm at a rehearsal big band at the Gosforth Hotel, Gosforth High Street many years ago as a very young 17, 18 year old, all the Jimmy Lally stuff, with those nasty key changes at the end, Malcolm used to guide me through them, also played in the Newcastle big band with him, I also thought he was the owner of every make of Mouthpiece going, such a warm nice guy, and such a shock to get this news. R.I.P.
