Farewell    Captain

 
Derek Wilson

Bearwood Jazz are saddened to announce the passing of Derek Wilson, better known to those at the club as Captain. Captain was a massive support to Andy Hamilton in his later years, running the PA at the Cork’s Club as well as at other gigs including The Drum, the Symphony Hall and the Trumpet in Bilston. He would make sure there was a Blue Notes band in place for Andy’s gigs, ferry Andy about and so much more. He also played guitar and can be seen here jamming with The Blue Notes at one of Andy’s Sunday lunchtime gigs at The Drum.
 

After Andy’s death Captain moved into caring work, both privately and in the voluntary sector. He will be greatly missed.
 

Captain died on 3rd October and his funeral will be at City Road Baptist Church on Thursday 26th October. I will post the time when I get it.


VIC EVANS THE JAZZ MAN

a photograph by Paul Hassell

Surfing the internet I came across this wonderful photograph ov Vic Evans, the Blue Notes vocalist. It's a truly wonderful shot that truly captures the Vic we know and love, and looks more like a photo-realist drawing than a photograph - A work of art!

The photographer, Paul Hassell, emailed us the photograph, kindly giving us permission to upload it to our website. You can see more of Paul’s work on his site at http://www.paulhassell.co.uk
