    The Humphrey Lyttelton Band – Celebrating Humph and his music!

    Humphrey Lyttelton Band

    Tony Fisher – trumpet

    Robert Fowler – tenor/baritone saxes + clarinet

    Ray Wordsworth – trombone

    Ted Beament – piano

    Jimmy Hastings – alto sax + clarinet

    Adrian Macintosh – drums

    John Rees-Jones – double bass

     

    In 2008, Humphrey Lyttelton celebrated sixty years as a bandleader, his hallmark being versatility, reflected in a repertoire which extends from early traditional to modern by way of  Ellington and Basie. Tonight from his Legacy Band you’ll hear Humph’s big hit ‘Bad Penny Blues’ plus some Buck Clayton arrangements. It’s little surprise that the prevailing reaction from audiences is ‘We never thought a jazz concert could have such variety!’ The most important ingredients are, of course, the musicians, all stars in their own right!
