Binky’s Dixie Demons with special guest Ray Wordsworth, trombone and vocals
Tuesday 26th November 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
This month’s special guest is Ray Wordsworth, trombone, who, incidentally has been deputising for Pat during his absence from the band.
Ray started playing trombone and piano at the age of eight and went professional on leaving school at 16. At 21 he joined Ken Mackintosh, then Sid Phillips, Joe Daniels, BBC Radio Band, Syd Lawrence, Geoff Love, Humphrey Lyttleton, Alex Welsh and many more. He has worked with artists including Frank Sinatra, Sarah Vaughan, Billy Eckstine, Mel Torme, Shirley Bassey and Jack Jones.
Near the end of George Chisholm’s career, when he was too ill to play, George asked Ray to stand in for him on several broadcasts and he is still working with The Gentlemen of Jazz doing a tribute to George.
