Studio 20, New Briggate
Description:
1955. View shows unknown musicians performing at the Studio 20 jazz club on New Briggate. The club, owned by tuba player Bob Barclay, featured jazz performances seven nights a week and was host to many of the biggest names in jazz during the 1950s and 1960s. The 'Gallery of Fame' in the corner was signed by many of the stars to appear here. Photograph courtesy of Terry Cryer.

It's just a thought, but could the clarinettist be Martin Bowland who played with Bob Barclay's "Yorkshire Jazz Band" ?

I dont know Graham,but I wish it were me.Im 76 now and learning to play the b flat clarinet,my favorites are Woddy Herman and Arte Shaw.Benny G is ok too,but Arte's "Begin the beguiun" leaves him behind. My regret is that at Rowland Rd school we had no instruments to play on,1946 on, but we did do some music theory.

No Graham, the clarinettist is Denis Raybould, I know for a fact as he was engaged to a friend of mine. I see Ed O'Donnell on trombone, but not sure of the trumpet and banjo. I should know because I spent all my spare time down Studio 20!
