This has just come through.
Chris was the long-time pianist with the Bob Barnard Band, one of the
world's best jazz musicians and a wonderful friend to all who knew him.
I am devastated to inform you that Julian came to see me last night to
say that his brother Chris had suffered a sudden haemorrage at home
yesterday and died some time later in hospital. Our thoughts go to his wife
Gwen and the family.
