Bill Mann was one of the co-founders of 'The Aberdeen Jazz Society', which is no longer in existence. Listed below are some of the most excellent musicians of National and International status who kindly performed for the Aberdeen Jazz Society after being invited by Bill Mann when he was secretary of the society in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Coming soon, youtube and website links.
