Hello my friends!
I was playing at London’s ‘Spice of Life’ yesterday (23 January 2015) and my wonderful CORNOPEAN couldn’t be found when I left! This beautiful antique instrument (like a small cornet or VERY small trumpet) is absolutely unique and was left to me by my late friend the great John R.T. ‘Ristic’ Davies – a true legend of the British jazz scene. The Cornopean is marked ‘MB Smith London’ on its bell; it’s extremely valuable – and it has been with me for a LONG time. I play it on all my gigs and to lose it is quite a personal tragedy for me. So – if anyone knows where it is there is a BIG reward offered to the person who returns it. And of course no questions will be asked! You can contact me via the ‘contact’ form on the site or e-mail me at : firstname.lastname@example.org
