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!
