Jazz Bassist John Ferguson Dies

Wednesday, 11 January 2012 09:48
Veteran fans of British bop will be saddened to hear of the death of
John Ferguson, the popular Glaswegian double-bassist involved for over
20 years with small groups around London, many featuring the late
pianist Iggy Quayle and drummers Laurie Morgan or Lennie Breslaw.

Taken ill a few days after Christmas, he was brought to hospital near
his home in West Kensington but died from a combination of chest
infection and long-term asbestos poisoning caused by construction work
in his youth.
