Sad News, Jeff Clyne RIP.

Some very sad news for the the UK. Virtuoso bassist Jeff Clyne passed away monday (16 November) at the age of 72. Jeff Clyne had been a key figure in British jazz for over 40 years and played on some groundbreaking albums, Stan Tracey's Under Milk Wood, Tubby Hayes' 100% Proof and the first three seminal albums by Ian Carr's Nucleus. He also played and recorded with the likes of the Jazz Couriers with Hayes and Ronnie Scott, Keith Tippett, plus hosts of others. He was prominent for a while in nascent British jazz rock bands such as Isotope, Gilgamesh and his own band, Turning Point. Jeff Clyne also recorded a little known but superb pre-Nucleus album with Ian Carr plus Trevor Watts and John Stevens entitled Springboard , on the Polydor label, which is highly sought after by collectors. Clyne was also a teacher and co-director of the Wavendon jazz course, and taught at the Royal Academy of Music and Guildhall School of Music and Drama

The great white (vinyl) hunter returns!

Fresh is not the term I would use but after enduring 30hrs of travel,I must confess to feeling better than I thought I would.I picked up vinyl in 3 locations and owing to weight restrictions had to post the albums home.The first batch made it home before me and will provide the material for my first show.So a plug for a very good record (and cd) store,Crazy Beat Records in Upminster,Essex.If you are in the Essex/East London area,this store is well worth a visit,only 5 mins walk from Upminster Station.I picked up a great compilation album Latin Spectrum,some wicked tunes on this one.Also a great double album on Soul Brother Records from Eddie Henderson,Retrospective.All the smokin' jazz funk/fusion numbers we love on a new pressing! The 3rd album on this little expedition is a real gem,a compilation from Solid State Records in great condition.Tracks from Johnny Lytle,Jimmy McGriff,King Pleasure and more.So a great mixed show coming up featuring jazz/funk classics,some hot latin and classic jazz.What more could a jazzhead want? Look out for the link very soon.

Cheers Andy
