Here is a photo of the Black Horse Jazzmen in 1993/4 playing at our 1st residence, the Hellifield Black Horse. Thus the band name. Guesting is Mike Lunn on banjo. Our reed player was Dave Stansfield who many will remember as a good bass player, who wanted to play reeds. Sadly he died shortly after this photo was taken. Rhythm guitar is Pete Lawrence, bass guitar his son Sam, myself on trumpet & trombone. Can anyone tell me more about Dave, I met him whilst both sitting in at the Station Inn in Skipton. - Peter Boswell (Those were the days: - when you get a fillet steak meal for £8.50 - Fred)


The 4th Bude Jazz Festival, August ’91, and we went to the Hawarden Club, Crooklets, to hear the brilliant ‘Charleston Chasers’ playing classic 20’s jazz. We were miffed to find that we had just missed the 80 year-old Harry Gold, of ‘Pieces of Eight’ fame, sitting in for a couple of numbers on bass sax. At the interval I asked could I take his photo. He took hold of my arm and marched me through a packed club to the foyer, and posed in front of a large notice that read “SORRY NO DISCO NEXT FRIDAY 30.8.91 DUE TO JAZZ” !  Harry was chuffed to bits, and this photo was shown in Alice Garnett’s “Jazz Times” in April ’92. - Terry Birkinhead


Dear Fred , here is a drawing from my sketchbook when I was at Manchester College of Art and singing with The Southside Stompers at The Black Lion in Salford every Saturday night.  It’s of Eric ‘ Ulysses’ Newton who was the bass player at that time. - Sheila Collier


This was taken at a jazz festival in Port Laoise in Ireland a long time ago, it consists of three bands - the lot you see here as a marching band.  It split up into two smaller bands to play bars, Norman Thatcher is on the left holding up a pint, Keith Moore in the green jacket my good self on clarinet, I can't remember names of others it was a scratch band put together by the guy behind the banjo player, typical in Ireland the place we are in front of was half hardware store and half a bar.  Below - The Mahogany Hall Stompers at Dumfries Jazz Club, a picture taken in the mid 80’s.  Martian Bennett on trombone, was living in Lancaster working on a boat. Keith Moore is on trumpet, Barrie Marshall on clarinet, John Rothwell on drums, Neil Harrison on bass and Paul Guppy on guitar.- Barrie Marshall (click on photos for full screen). - Barrie Marshall



Car parking at Malvern jazz festival, 1991,-  The photo was taken at The ‘Al Capone’ Hot Jazz Festival, at The Winter Gardens, Malvern in October 1991. This gives you some idea of how keen the local authority were in enforcing the strict parking regulations. - Terry Birkinhead


Here’s one from the 1970s; The Panama Jazz Band at The Black Horse, West Kirby: In the days when the pub was absolutely packed at 8pm on our Wednesday nights and proprietors Mr and Mrs Wiley would bring round hot pasties to all. The Panama line-up in the photo is Dave Renton (tmb), Robin Tankard (bss), Me (tpt) and Dave Thomas (clt). - Jon Critchley


Both these photographs featuring Carole Oldham were taken by Terry Birkinhead. The photo of Carole in a blue dress was taken July 1994 and has Tommy Orrett a founder member of the Savoy Jazzmen in the background. The photo of Carole in a floral dress was taken in August 1995 and has Hugh Gerrard and Reg Aveyard backing her. - Photos submitted by Peter Swensson.


I came across this photograph on my PC by accident, I'd forgotten I had it. I have to say I feel privileged to have known everyone on it, some are no longer with us but thankfully some are. I've met and spoken to them all. Having said that, I just hope I get their names right. L-R John Higham, Derek Vaux, Peter Fryer, Peter Darwin, John Lawrence, Frank Robinson, Ken 'Nob' Baldwin, and Don Lydiatt. It looks like an official band photograph, but anybody know when it was taken, - Fred Burnett

This photo was taken on the balcony at the rear of the Queen Elizabeth Hall in July 2003, writes Peter Darwin.  We all had a brilliant time and a proper night to remember, thanks to the BBC.  Here is a link to the event.
