This is NOT a flag waving excercise, I'm just curious to know how European Jazz and British jazz in particular is perceived in the U.S.A, and whether you think we have produced any world class musicians.
If I shoot a few names at you, which readily come to mind, it would be interesting to know whether any of these guys hold any sway with you. I guess the answer depends on availability on record, without which, there may be little or no opportunity to have heard these people, so have you encountered the following? -
Past Tense:- Tubby Hayes, saxes,vibes,flute, Archie Semple clarinet, Phil Seamen drums, Don Lusher trombone, Eddie Thompson pno., Humphrey Lyttelton tpt., Kenny Baker tpt.
Present Tense:- Bruce Adams, tpt/fluglehorn, Mark Nightingale, trombone, Alan Barnes saxes/clarnet/flute, David Newton pno.,
Steve Brown drums., Roy Williams tbn. Danny Moss sax/clarinet, Stacey Kent vocal
Any nominations of your own ?
