Tubby Hayes
Styles: Jazz
Catalogue Number: ACTRCD9042
Featuring 22 previously unissued live tracks, this new 3-CD anthology is the ultimate celebration of the genius of the late, great Tubby Hayes, tracing his meteoric career from teenage wunderkind to youthful veteran. Heard on all four of his principal instruments – tenor saxophone, soprano saxophone, flute and vibes - as well as leading a series of quartets, quintets and big bands, Hayes is also featured in ultra-rare collaborations with leading British jazz figures including Joe Harriott, Tommy Whittle, Stan Tracey, John Dankworth and Tony Lee, many of whom he worked with only rarely. The collection includes new versions of Hayes’ classic compositions like “100% Proof” and “Off The Wagon”, alongside items which don’t appear anywhere else in his studio-recorded discography. Recorded in clubs throughout the UK and at festivals, rehearsals and informal private jam sessions, this release also contains a comprehensive booklet essay by noted Hayes authority and award-winning saxophonist Simon Spillett, together with rare memorabilia and press cuttings from the period. This is Tubby Hayes as you’ve never heard him before!
