19/09/20 - Found this old photo of George Chisholm (trombone), my ex late husband Colin Tomkins (trumpet) and John Hallam (reeds). I can remember this, but can’t think of the venue! Must have been early 70’s but probably John can remember?

Brenda Canty -Forrest (was Tomkins)


Here’s a couple of photos of me with Humphrey Lyttelton, the late Denis Gilmour (trumpet) and Tony Foulkes (clarinet) playing in Glossop at a Jazz Festival.

28/09/20 - Two more photographs from Peter Swensson. Peter says, "It was a Savoy Jazzmen event but can’t remember the occasion. On the photos Jeff Lewis, Dave Renton, Don May, Les Harris, Geoff Walker, Tommy Orrett, Reg Aveyard, Robbie Foster, Stu Carter, Ken Horton, Pete Darwin, Don May and the good looking one, Peter Swensson, is obscured.

Well done in resurrecting these photos from your archive ! Yes, I took the photos and it was The Savoy Jazzmen’s 30th anniversary celebration in the upstairs room at ‘The Welly’, on 24th May 1990. That was a great night, and the finale had 14 musicians on stage giving it some ’welly’. I have 14 photos of that event in one of my albums. The late Al MacDowall once told the Wirrorleans regulars that I was the only bloke he knew that took a photo of every tune ! - Terry Birkenhead


06/10/20 - "Don't know how I got this photo", write Peter Swensson, "anyhow it's John Petters' New Orleans All Stars taken on the boat Lady Diana, in Chester, in June 1996. L-R - Clive Payne, Ken Sims, John Petters, Mart Rodger (depping), and Tim Phillips.


07/10/20 - This photograph sent to by Harry Swinburne shows the Chicago Teds in about 1989.  He thinks it was taken at The Dovedale Towers, which is situated on the famous Penny Lane in Liverpool.  The musicians are, from left to right,  Roy Rogers, Neville Baldwin, Ken Doran, Brian Singleton,  Tony Dunleavy, Joe Addy and Derek Pierce.



17/10/20 - I'm not sure when or where this was taken and how I ended up with a copy", says Peter Swensson. "I only recognise Billy Edwards. It would be good to know the names of the other musicians.



12/10/20 - It seems, like a lot of other musicians, I've been looking through old photographs and came across this one of the John Gordon Quartet. It was taken in Northwich Market, sometime in the mid 1990s but we can't remember the exact date. What a smart-looking group! The personnel is Mick Burns, trumpet, Sammy Reynolds, clarinet and sax, myself on bass trombone and John Gordon, banjo - Paul Medina

Photo of Phil Mason & Christine Tyrell guesting with the Tuxedo Jazz Band,  October 1995.  Arthur Williams, Geoff Jones, Carl Thompson, Brian Woods, Phil Mason, Unknown, Christine Tyrell, Brian Legan & Mal Horne.  Photo courtesy of Terry Birkinhead.  Their uniform is very fetching! - Peter Swensson


I’ve been working on my web site and I have this picture of Tom Culbert with Colin Brownrigg,  myself  and Jim Heap at Lucas factory where my dad (John Brunton), worked. I think it’s 1985. As you can see I'm very concentrated on plying the right chords with Tom looking on! - Gary Brunton
