Remembering Clem Avery

November 2 marks the tenth anniversary of the passing of Clem Avery. A fine trumpet player, bassist and an ambassador for all that was, and is, good in the music we all love and try to share.
Clem did his fair share of sharing in the form of his playing with bands ranging in style from New Orleans to mid-period mainstream.
When Clem died, BSH was fortunate (if that's the right word) to have his great friend and fellow musician Roly Veitch share his memories which can be re-read here.
A further, more detailed link (from the original Blaydon Jazz Club website) gives yet more insight into Clem Avery.
Gone, but not forgotten.
Lance.
