Identify the players.


The ashes of the late jazz singer Sheila Giles were recently scattered from a bridge over the River Tyne.

The picture on the left shows Sheila with several local jazzmen.
The trumpet player looks like Joe McMullen, the trombone player is surely Ronnie McLean and the tall guy behind Ronnie could be John Pearce but who are the others?
Lance.
PS: More photos of Sheila shortly.
