Solly Lipsitz was instrumental in introducing jazz and blues to Belfast through his record shop Atlantic Records. Late last year I decided I would like to interview Solly about his life as a musician, jazz enthusiast and record shop owner. We recorded the interview and I'm please to be able to let you hear it here on my website. (Click the banner.)
Solly passed away on Saturday 30th March at the age of 92. Solly was a family friend of my mother, father and uncle, he'll be sadly missed by many. My heartfelt condolences go out to Anne and the family circle.
