Humphrey Lyttelton

Born:

Humphrey Lyttelton is descended from a long line of land-owning, political, military, clerical, scholastic and literary forebears. Not a musician among them. He claims to have most in common with a former Humphrey Lyttelton who was executed for complicity with Guy Fawkes in the Gunpowder plot. He was born on May 23rd, 1921 in Eton College, where his father was a famous housemaster, and where he was subsequently educated. During the war, he served as an officer in the Grenadiar Guards and, on demobilisation, studied for two years at Camberwell Arts School. In 1949, he joined the London Daily Mail as cartoonist, during which time he also wrote the story-line for Trog's 'Flook' cartoon" Trog being the nom de plume of clarinetist Wally Fawkes. He formed his first jazz band in 1948, after spending a year with George Webb’s Dixielanders, a band which pioneered New Orleans-style jazz in Britain
