I knew George through his peripatetic work with Manchester Music Service at Mauldeth Road Primary School. George gave me a few flute lessons so I might keep up with the children. He was always full of fun with a great sense of humour. I engaged him to play at my 60th birthday party in Cumbria after I retired. A wonderful memory for me. RIP George you brought a lot of pleasure to people’s lives.

Never thought I would outlast George as he looked OK although he had stopped playing.I once had a lesson from him. I was at the bar with a friend and George was playing his tenor and during his solo he walked over to us and blew some loud low notes from about two feet away. So the lesson was "Don't talk when the band is playing". Good advice from a local legend and we will all miss him a lot, even his jokes no matter how many times he told them!

I am so sad to hear that George has passed away. He taught me to play the flute from the age of 11, a young girl from a Manchester council estate who had no musical background whatsoever. He taught me to make my flute sing and gave me a wonderful outlet in the form of music. I was lucky enough to make contact once again with him in later years. I shall miss his jokes and his wonderful wit. My condolences to all of his family.

I was one of those that had the pleasure of playing at Ganders Goes South with Don Long's band. George was on most of those gigs and was always fun to be with. A brilliant musician and a gentleman. He will be missed by many and remembered by all that had the joy of his company.

I first met George in the 1980s when he played at Ganders. I was a teenager and hadn’t even aspired to be a jazz musician at that point. He always had an air of mischief and his sense of fun was always evident in his performances. I did my first ever jazz gig with George, and many more after that. He also played at my wedding. A real legend who will never be forgotten
