The 1970’s and 80’s were the heyday for many of the surviving American musicians to tour the UK and Europe. Don was lucky to be in the right place at the right time as resident reedman at the famous Boston(Lincs) Jazz Club and as well as playing with many British stars like Digby Fairweather, Roy Williams etc., he also played with many visiting Americans.
