Hello Chris & Pat.
I used to go to the Jazz Clubs years ago & listen to you & Pat When you played in Southall. I also used to take you from Ealing Broadway Underground Stn. To the Pub in Southall right opposite the Odeon Cinema on the Uxbridge Road. At times I took Pat home too. He lived in one of the turnings off Pitshanger lane, I think it was called Castle Bar Park, I can still remember that his home had a rather long pathway from the pavement to the front door. I was an Ealing Broadway Cab Driver in those days. I used to live on the Cuckoo Estate, not far from Pat. I myself now play the trumpet, hence my email address, but I live in Australia now & have done so since 1969. I play Jazz with a Band called THE JAZZ FACTORY on the Sunshine Coast up in Queensland. I am also around your age's Born on 11th of March 1930. Yes,,Getting rather OLD. LOL. But still blowing a trumpet & loving it. I'll send you a photo of me playing, I am the one in the red shirt playing as a guest.
I hope you do get the chance to read this letter Chris, it could bring back some very nice memories. But right now I will say cheerio & good luck to you Chris, Pat & the rest of the boy's.
Regards... Wally Marshall.
Here is the photo of me playing on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland Australia. Yes,, It's a long way from the lod Jazz Club at the Viaduct in Hanwell England.. Regards Wally Marshall.
