In VJM 194, we feature Siblings, Complimentary: Gene & Dudley Fosdick, penned by learned, articulate writer Andrew J. Sammut who writes the blog The Pop Of Yestercentury, in his first VJM article.

Russ Shor submits an interesting piece titled Abbe Niles - He Heard It All. First! about this writer who covered a wide range of music styles and people in his writings. We present an addendum to Dave Hignett’s discography of Captain George Warmack in the last issue, in particular a nice record cover with vocalist Rosy ‘Cherry’ Miyano and an update to the discography. Brian Goggin has written a short piece Unsung Heroes: Sidney de Paris in appreciation of this great trumpeter who is on our cover this time.

This issue features Ate van Delden’s final Ramblings (see a selection of his Ramblings onlinewhich marks the end of an era - sincere thanks to Ate for all of his research and contributions to VJM over the years and wishing him all the best. His Adrian Rollini discography is complete now, more on when and where that will be published in due course. As I mentioned last time, multi-talented musician and scholar Colin Hancock takes over the Ramblings from the next issue, so extending a warm welcome to the VJM team for Colin.
