Brian Carrick’s Algiers Stompers “Slow Drag’s Boogie Woogie”

This is one of my very first YouTubes featured on Jazz&Jazz way back in 2013.
I have a two very special reasons for posting it again now.

Trefor Williams was guesting on double bass for that Peartree Jazz Club session and he stayed with my wife and I overnight when we lived in Lemsford Village, Hertfordshire.
I understand that currently Trefor is in very poor health, so this is for him.

Plus it’s also for Brian Carrick who is fighting back after a spell of illness.

Prayers and best wishes for them both.

Brian Carrick (clt, sax), Peter Wright (tpt), Chas Hudson (tmb), Bob Rowbotham (bjo), Trefor Williams (bass), Andrew Hall (dms), Gabrielle Gad (pno).

    I have seen Brian in jazz concerts at Harwich and I saw a comment early last year that he had # Sepsis # disease, which can cause death , so I emailed Brian a couple of times. Since I did not get a reply I thought he may be in hospital In my view Brain Carrick and Sammy Rimington are the best British clarinetists. Perhaps if anyone knows his condition can you post on here.
    Should you want to email me please see below, thanks.
