Jazz At Other Local Venues

Johnny Barnes/Roy Williamson
Johnny Barnes/Roy Williamson     May 1978

This was taken in the Lucas Club in Burnley as part of the Lennie Hastings Benefit Night. Lenny, the drummer with the Alex Welsh Band, had died a few weeks before and the money was to help his widow. At the piano is the local gentleman of jazz, Eric Ainsworth. In spite of the sad connections, it was a good night of jazz played in a spirit of which Lenny would have approved.
