Jazz in Great Harwood
Red Norvo and Tal Farlow
Red Norvo came with a reputation for being very ill mannered and temperamental
but when he arrived he was wonderful. He invited one of the local vibes players to
duet with him and it was a pleasure to see them both enjoying the music together.
The atmosphere was helped by the presence of the great guitarist, Tal Farlow,
an unassuming but brilliant player.
