Tubby Hayes

Tubby (Edward Brian) Hayes was one of Britain's finest tenor sax players, Jazz musicians and composers. He co-led the successful Jazz Couriers with Ronnie Scott from 1957 to 1959. He led several distinguished quartets and was the first British contemporary to appear at regular intervals in the USA. One of his most distinguished quartets came in the late 1950's, a group which included Terry Shannon, Jeff Clyne, Phil Seaman or Bill Eyden. Another in the 1960's included Ron Mathewson, Tony Levin and Mike Pyne. Hayes who was arguably the most prodigiously talented jazz multi-instrumentalist the British Isles has ever produced

Jazz & Film: An Alternative Top 20 Soundtrack Albums

Read "Jazz & Film: An Alternative Top 20 Soundtrack Albums" reviewed by Chris May

Jazz and the movies have a shared history stretching back almost a hundred years. The relationship came into its own in the US in the mid twentieth century. Elia Kazan's 1950 movie Panic In The Streets is an early example of how film makers used jazz-based soundtracks to enhance drama and atmosphere and create ambiances of ...

Prestige Records: An Alternative Top 20 Albums

Read "Prestige Records: An Alternative Top 20 Albums" reviewed by Chris May

Along with Alfred Lion's Blue Note and Orrin Keepnews' Riverside, Bob Weinstock's Prestige was at the top table of independent New York City-based jazz labels from the early 1950s until the mid 1960s. Like those other two labels, Prestige built up a profuse catalogue packed with enduring treasures. Originally a record retailer, Weinstock ...

Riverside Records: An Alternative Top Ten

Read "Riverside Records: An Alternative Top Ten" reviewed by Chris May

From 1953, when it was set up, to 1964, when it was acquired by ABC, Riverside Records rivalled Blue Note and Prestige as one of the leading independent jazz labels based in New York City. The founders of all three labels were jazz fans who operated on slim margins and became producers partly because they enjoyed ...

Ed "Tenderlonious" Cawthorne: The Piccolo: Tender Plays Tubby

Read "The Piccolo: Tender Plays Tubby" reviewed by Chris May

Saxophonist, flautist and vibraphonist Tubby Hayes, who died at the unconscionably young age of 38 in 1973, was that rare thing among the first generation of British hard boppers—a musician who was taken seriously by the hippest American musicians and audiences. He visited New York in 1961 and 1964 for seasons at the Half Note, and ...

To Dream the Impossible Dream: the quest for a music education

Read "To Dream the Impossible Dream: the quest for a music education" reviewed by Peter Rubie

I've been thinking a lot about how jazz is taught recently. I realize now, my search for a real musical education was not a simple thing, but a series of life changing moments. My son, on the other hand, is planning to study music in college after he finishes high school. Though it would fill his ...

Various Artists: Unusual Sounds: The Hidden History of Library Music

Read "Unusual Sounds: The Hidden History of Library Music" reviewed by Chris May

Library music--aka stock or production music--was first marketed in the 1920s, to be used by “picture palaces" showing silent movies. Its golden age came during the 1960s and 1970s, when it provided off-the-shelf incidental music for radio, television, film and advertising. Ever since Quentin Tarantino included recordings by one of that era's most prolific British library-music ...

Gordon Beck Quartet Featuring Joy Marshall: When Sunny Gets Blue: Spring ’68 Sessions

Read "When Sunny Gets Blue: Spring ’68 Sessions" reviewed by Roger Farbey

For British jazz fans, the late Gordon Beck probably needs no introduction. Beck was undoubtedly one of the best and most undervalued pianists the UK has produced. Joy Marshall, however, is perhaps not so well-known. Born in New York, Marshall moved to England in 1962 at the age of 25, where she resided until her tragic ...

George Winstone: Outer Spaces

Read "Outer Spaces" reviewed by Roger Farbey

Alto saxophonist and composer George Winstone's debut recording stands out from the crowd. Technically it's an EP but at 33 minutes it's not very different in duration from some LPs; it's actually the same length as Coltrane's A Love Supreme and four minutes longer than (Albert Ayler's Spiritual Unity . Winstone, who was born ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
