It might help (in dating the NJF leaflet more accurately, that is) that Dill Jones' "Jazz at the Marquee" Club referred to had its 'star-studded' opening on Saturday 4th January 1958. Plainly, the leaflet post-dated this event and was thus 'late 1958' rather than 'mid'.

Thanks Les. Julian Purser also pointed out to me another clue fixing the year as 1958. I guess I should read as well as scan

Actually I did read this and thought it a very interesting item as a sort of context for the band within the British jazz scene as a whole in the late 50s.

I've changed the title on the menu page and the page for the leaflet. Thanks again. EJ
