The British multi-instrumentalist, who was most often featured on the tenor saxophone, was a jazz giant, despite coming up in the '50s without the benefit of New York, Chicago and Los Angeles woodshedding. Something of a cross between Stan Getz and Hank Mobely on ...

Tubby Hayes: Split Kick - Live In Sweden 1972

Read "Split Kick - Live In Sweden 1972" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

The hits, as various unimaginative DJs keep reminding us, just keep on coming. So, too--or so it appears--do new albums of material from the late Tubby Hayes.

Tubby Hayes: The Syndicate - Live At The Hopbine 1968 Vol. 1

Read "The Syndicate - Live At The Hopbine 1968 Vol. 1" reviewed by Roger Farbey

Out of all the Tubby Hayes archival releases over the past few years, this one should by rights generate more than passing interest for several reasons.

The chiming notes of a very Mahavishnu Orchestra sounding guitar open the tension-rich “Fire Mountain" hotly pursued by Theo Travis' intense tenor sax soloing and coruscating axe work from Mike Outram.
