Don Weller by Jazzdenski

This is the infamous Don Weller referred to in my story Memories of Matthew Part 1 when Matthew, aka Xero Slingsby, tried to sit in with Weller at a gig at Leeds University. He also played a major role in a very embarrassing moment for yours truly at the Appleby Jazz Festival some years ago. I may write that down here in due course. He is an excellent tenorman!

    love all your images…. You’ve obviously been around the jazz scene for a very long time with many tales to tell Denis… why don’t you write a photo/book about your experiences…. I’d buy a copy for sure

  • Hey Rick, don’t tell everyone about that ‘very long time’ they will be thinking I’m old or something! The book idea is good, but have I the energy to do it at this great age. LOL. Cheers my friend!

    I like his intensity. You caught him mid-note, mid-dream, all music.

  • Don is like a big cuddly bear, but he doesn’t suffer fools glady, as I once found out! Thanks for your comment Barbara.
