RIP Sharon Tenniswood Isaacs


Just heard the heartbreaking news that big band singer Jason Isaacs' lovely wife Sharon died on June 12. A lovely, bubbly, and very intelligent person, Sharon would never let you pass without a smile and a hug. Deepest sympathy and condolence to Jason and family.
May Sharon Rest In Peace, she will be sadly missed.

I'm so shocked - I didn't know Sharon, but I've seen her at the gigs - so young and full of life. My heart goes out to Jason and his family ...... cancer is so cruel and indiscriminate ......

Kenny Craig (on F/b) said...

So sad. My condolences.

It wasn't cancer that killed her, but depression :-(

So sad for your loss of a beautiful person in Sharon. We knew each other in the office in first school and our Daughters were friends. Thinking of you Jason, Isaac and Daisy - be strong and look after each other 😞

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
