it was with great sadness when I heard that simon goss, co-founder of the amazing label Wah Wah 45s, had passed just months after being diagnosed with lung cancer. by all accounts he was truly a gent in the world of music. when attending the Worldwide Awards in London a few weeks back I got to meet Scrimshire (featured here) who is a part of the Wah Wah 45s family and we talked a bit about Simon, his family and his absolute love of music. he will be missed by those that knew and loved him as well as those that got to hear and appreciate great music as a result of all that he did.
As a testament to all that Simon did you can check out the Simon Says event on March 25th in the Jazz Cafe in London where you can go to hear an absolute stunning lineup of artists and support The Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation.
Check out the facebook page for more details and please, if in London, go along and support the night to honor Simon, his family, friends and the music he wished to share.Joe Pass - A Time For Us by thermm
