It is with the deepest sadness that I share the news of the passing of my very dear friend and mentor, the Jamaican bassist, Coleridge Goode. He died at his home in West London following a heart attack at 8pm on Friday 2 October.

It was my great privilege to have celebrated his 100th birthday with Coleridge and his wonderful family last November, and I’d really hoped we would be marking his 101st with him this year. Sadly this was not to be.

I’ll write in more detail soon, but just wanted to share this very sad news with friends and fans of Coleridge.

My heartfelt condolences go to Coleridge’s children – daughter, Sandy and son, James. And coming not so long after the passing of Coleridge’s beautiful wife, Gertrude (23 June 2015) makes this all the more sad.

If you’d like to leave a message of condolence, please feel free…
