Identify the Professors.


I have followed your blog for some time now. It's quite interesting for someone like me who is interested in the jazz scene in UK in the 1960s. Anyway, I came across a photo of Pete Deuchar's Professors of Ragtime, probably from 1959 or 1960, and I wonder whether you or someone on the blog would be able to identify the musicians on that picture.
I hope you can help! 
Johann Haidenbauer.
David  'Dave' Evans (drums) and 'Chez' Graham Robertson Chesterman (trumpet) are also sometimes mentioned as having been in the Professors of Ragtime.
However, I don't know how they look like - and therefore cannot tell whether they are on this picture.

Finally, there is a live recording of Pete Deuchar from the Antibes 1963 festival which one can listen to and/or download - in case you or others on Bebop Spoken Here are interested in this!

Could that be John Saxelby with the clarinet?

Lance said...

Definitely John Saxelby. Pete Deuchar in the centre. But who are the other three? The guitarist on the left of the picture is still a well-known figure today.

A young John McLaughlin, guitar (left); behind him is Norman 'Nobby' Burn, drums; right of pic holding Pete's guitar is pianist, John Clarke along with John Saxelby, clarinet
