I would like to thank everyone at the Manchester Jazz Festival and Marsden Jazz Festival for their help and patience over the years; long may both of them continue. Thanks also to Hazel Miller at Ogun Records for allowing me to shoot the Elton Dean Memorial Concert, and to Mike Chadwick and all the staff at Band on the Wall in Manchester. Thanks also to the late Derek Shiel (1939 - 2017), Artistic Director of Sculpted Sound for asking me to cover his Futurism Updated event at London's Embassy Theatre in 2009. Finally, thanks to Andy Cronshaw from Manchester Evening News for featuring some of my pictures in his reviews from the 2014 Manchester Jazz Festival.
