RIP Louis Stewart

Just heard the sad news that Irish guitarist Louis Stewart died earlier today aged 72.
Probably Ireland's greatest ever jazz guitarist Louis Stewart was world class and I have fond memories of hearing him at Newcastle's Corner House in 1981.
More later.

Obituary.

So sorry to hear this. Zoe and I met him at The City of Derry Jazz Festival a few years ago.
RIP Louis.

I'm remembering a brilliant Radio 3 jazz session quite a few years back, maybe the 1980s. It was a quartet featuring Louis and pianist John Taylor. Both now gone.

Sad news a great player saw him at the Inn off the Park Middlesbrough.

A great player who played a memorable duo gig with a young Martin Taylor at the Corner House, Newcastle.
