Tony (a cousin of Conrad’s)

I cherish the memories of coming to visit you in Leicester in the 80’s and possibly 90’s. On my drive home I had a head full of music and ideas and a list of books on physics, philosophy and Indian recipes to find, and lists of songs or records to seek out.

He educated me about the Great American Songbook which I already loved but he would guide me to paths less trodden where I discovered composers and lyricists that I enjoy to this day ….. I will miss him, but cherish the wisdom, humour, science and improvisation on a jazz tune that we could share together.
