Derek James Else

Semi-retired really. I am now running a quintet playing local gigs only. Clarinet,Piano, Double Bass, Drums, Vocalist. We only do about two gigs every year. I have for many years played Alto Sax. as well but do not play it at the moment. I have been working on the London & Home Counties scene for over 40 years playing with many different bands on an amateur basis. For fifteen years I have been the Treasurer and Membership Secretary of the Duke Ellington Society UK (DESUK). All for the love of Duke!
