Chris Wagstaff

We are very sad to let you know about the death on 19 January of Chris Wagstaff, a well loved and respected giant of a character in so many ways, including on the local jazz scene. He was an enthusiastic supporter of the jazz events promoted by Jazz in Reading, as well as a much-admired co-leader of and performer with local band Gli Avanzi. Chris’ family are planning to have a celebration of his life on the evening of Friday 6 April, in the Meadow Suite at Reading University. More detail soon.
