James Watson

Another great British trumpet player, and boyhood hero of mine, has just died. A really really great player.

I feel awful. It’s so sad. Can he really have just been 59? That’s what I’m seeing. This 4 Bars Rest story is the main source I have seen so far and I’m sure they would have checked.

I really ought to try to write about this some time. I was already thinking I should write something – possibly quite a lot, if I’m honest - about Maurice. And now this. Sheesh. Depressing.
