Such is the lasting popularity of Britain's most familiar trombone man. He seems to have been ever-present
on the big-band and jazz scene for as long as most of us can remember.

In this, the final event on Tuesday in the Green Man's contribution to the East Coast Jazz Festival, Don Lusher didn't let his many fans down. This was a laid-back, good-humoured evening of highly listenable music, mixed with loads of nostalgia and a good deal of joshing between Don and another ex-Ted Heath veteran on stage, drummer Jack Parnell.
Cheered on by an enthusiastic house, Don Lusher wandered his way through a selection of familiar standards, like Autumn Leaves, Georgia and There Will Never Be Another You, with that mellow and melifluous trombone to the fore. But he rightly paid tribute to the house rhythm section (Jack Parnell, Mike Capocci on piano and Mike Harris on bass) who, he said, made his job easy.
