Jazz in Great Harwood

Tommy Whittle

Tommy Whittle     May 1977

This Scottish sax player was a photographer's dream, with his laid back grace and his cool line in shirts. It always surprised me that these jazzmen, who were top in their field, were so easy to deal with.

When I gave Tommy a copy of this photograph he went straight away to put in his sax case for safety. He said that he must have been photographed a thousand times but I was the first to give him a print.
