I was interested in the article “And All That Jazz” by M.L.
I hope he won’t mind if I correct him on two points; the band led by Johnny Claes was known as the Clae Pigeons and I was amused to see the late Buddy Featherstonehaugh described as a jazz singer. Actually, he was a fine tenor sax player in the Coleman Hawkins tradition and one of the best outside the USA. He also played alto and baritone saxophone.
Only one jarring note in the article — the mention of pop group people and disc jockeys in the same breath as real musicians made me want to curl up! Glasgow EDMUND B. CLANCY
