    Ron, we met in the 70’s in Hampton Virginia when I was managing a jazz group from Hampton Institute, named Quazar and you were of course on tour with Chick.
    I then moved to the UK to have a jazz club with hopes of bringing Quazar over.
    My mom created, from a photo of you and your very young daughter, one of her art pieces.
    Now that your memory has been tasked…
    Good to see you are still active with some of my favorite artist.
    I am still a little involved with live performance here in Marina del Rey.
    I book the bands for the weekends at Fisherman’s Village, as part of my job with the management company here on site.
    If you are out and about some weekend and find yourself in the area, let me know. I would come over to meet up and catch up.
    contact info:

    Hi Ron. Wondered if you recall your old trombone teacher from Solihull, Fred Mercer? Gave me my first “gigs” on bass in a rehearsal band. My father was his drummer from mid sixties to early 90s.

    Cheers, Pete.

    Ron, we met at The Dorset Arms/The Crown, East Grinstead. JI were the hottest thing in our little town.
