Tony Poole

Last Jazz Dance Outpost Before Africa

Ex BBC Essex presenting "Jazz First" for 5 years to the Essex Jazz Police. Ex dusty groove record biz owner at Virgo Vibes (1994-2001). Ex promotor with the unfortunately named 'The Square' Jazz Club in Harlow and more recently with the San Javier International Jazz Festival. Pretty much "Ex" everything now days. Enjoying retirement in Spain with my sunglasses, pipe and slippers.
