Who is the headless trombone player?

Back in 1986 there was a crit (criterium for the non-cyclist) around Newcastle City Centre and, as was often the case, a jazz group was entertaining the crowds in between laps - sheltered from the rain in one of the entrances to Eldon Square.

The band, on this occasion was a mix of the ancient and modern with, left to right, John Wheatley (sousaphone); ? (drums); Roy Willis (banjo) ? (trombone); ? (trumpet); Sid Warren (soprano sax) & Mike Gilby (trumpet).


I think the drummer may have been Dennis Healey, and the other trumpet player had a music shop in Hexham although I cannot remember his name but, he was a well known session man in the area. However, the trombone player could have been anyone from either of the trad/modern divide.

Names anyone?

The drummer looks like Ernie Jackson to me.

Hi Lance I believe the Trombone player may be Mike Carton. Who was active in the area about that time 1980,s
I agree with Gordon Solomon that is Ernie Jackson on the drums.

The chap that Syd appears to be talking to is, I think, Terry Morgan.

Lance said...

Of course! Terry Morgan - how could I have forgotten Terry's name. I used to confuse him with Terry Milligan. To paraphrase a song, It's Easy to Forget and so Hard to Remember!
