RIP Chris de Saram

One of last night's sadder moments at Ushaw was when Zoë [Gilby] informed me of the death of Chris de Saram on August 21. Although I didn't know him personally, apart from jazz-related emails, his involvement with and enthusiasm for jazz was legendary both with Wakefield Jazz Club, where Zoë got her first big break away from the north-east, and with NorVol jazz. As such, I felt I did know him - his passing will be felt by many. 
Chris de Saram was 72.
Rest In Peace.
Sebastian Scotney has posted a fitting obituary on LondonJazzNews.
