Ray Ellington Quartet
John was probably a member of Ray’s Quartet from November 1964 to roughly the middle of 1965. The group had been very active in BBC broadcasting for some years, on BBC home and overseas services. During the period of John’s involvement their broadcasts were limited to a regular weekly slot on Roundabout (BBC Light) from 5/1/65 to 29/6/65 (26 episodes in total). Unfortunately, none of the surviving BBC contracts list the members of Ray’s Quartet at any given time.
