πŸ“šπŸ“–The Lost History of Jazz in Northamptonshire πŸ“šπŸ“–

A history of jazz in Northamptonshire from 1947 to 1972 has recently come to light after being hidden for 46 years. It was written in 1973 by Mr Eric Barrett, a past Mayor and
businessman of Higham Ferrers.

Eric was also a good musician, playing the trumpet and
undoubtedly quite a "jazz fanatic" in the heydays playing with the Jack Lantsbery Band at the Green Dragon in Higham Ferrers. Sadly Eric died in 1978 at the very young age of 48
years.

If you would like to purchase this book, then this is available for £5 from P.W.House in Rushden High Street, Higham Newsagents or contact Richard Lewis on 07960 950821 or r_lewis6@sky.com
