The guy on the drums, looks very much like Bob Barclay, who was the leader of The Yorkshire Jazz Band, and owner of this club. His instrument was the Tuba; but I have only a vague recollection of him playing drums. Can anyone confirm that this is him? Further, can anyone name any of the other players? Could the guy on the Alto Saxophone be a young Bruce Turner?

The sax player is Tony Coe. The drummer is a carpenter called Lenny. Brian Brocklehurst on Bass I think Joe Temperly on piano. In all the years I knew Bob Barcly I never saw him sitting behind a drum kit.Terry Cryer
