Announcement has been delayed in deference to Brian's wife Kathleen's wishes and to allow Brian's family to assemble from abroad to deal with matters. Kathleen requests expressions of condolence and sympathies be confined to card or letter presently whilst she struggles to come to terms with this sudden loss.
A celebration of Brian's life will be held at Nab Wood Crematorium on Thursday 12 October at 13:20
We plan at some point hence to hold a Bicat-Special in Brian's honour. Much detail is obviously to be added, however we broadly intend that this be a gig with Brian's favourite musicians, entry to which will be free, however there will be a "pay what you feel" arrangement, all proceeds of which will be donated to a charity of Kathleen's choice.
Farewell Brian - you are sorely missed
The JATPjazz King is dead. Long live the King!
