Two Tony Marsh videos

The first of these, for which I am grateful to Dave Solomon, shows the concentration of Tony, just 3 months ago. Alison may have been unhappy because her back is to us.
The second is of Tony playing at the first performance of On Duke's Birthday. Mike Westbrook told me that Tony never played the same twice, even if it had been rehearsed but it always worked! Thanks to Chris Biscoe for that one. In his usual modesty, Chris fails to highlight his own vital role.

Tony seemed unwilling to have much of his material recorded. However, we must be grateful to the likes of Helen Petts and Andy Newcombe for getting great material together of him on video at Mopomoso and the like.
