Kathleen Stobart in North East England - in the middle of the 1900's

from Doggin' around, page 185:

At this time she [Kathleen Stobart] met Keith Bird, a London-based jazz musican serving in the RAF and passing through the North-East.  He introduced her to jazz, coaching her during the tea breaks.

'He's play a chord on the piano and say: play what you can hear in there.  I could feel my fingers buzzing on the beat. He found out I had perfect pitch. And that was it.'
