R.I.P. Frankie Dunlop.


Belated information has come through that drummer Frankie Dunlop died last month (July) aged 85. Best remembered as a member of the definitive Thelonious Monk Quartet I personally remember him from a Lionel Hampton concert at Newcastle City Hall (see photo) back in 1983 - he retired shortly after, his name a legend in jazz drumology.
