TUBBY HAYES: EDWARD BRIAN “TUBBY” HAYES (1935-1973) was an English jazz multi-instrumental, best knows for his tenor saxophone playing in groups with fellow sax player Ronnie Scott. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest British Jazz instrumentalists. From 1957 to 1959 he joined Ronnie Scott in co-leading a quintet, The Jazz Cousiers, perhaps the most fondly remembered of British Modern Jazz groups.
INTENSITY . THE 1965 TAPES:
The 1965 Tapes was recorded at London's Ronnie Scott's jazz club, with the Hayes Quartet of the time: Terry Shannon (piano), Jeff Clyne (bass) and Benny Goodman, the British drummer. Hayes stretches out on three tracks totaling over 62 minutes, providing a rare example of his famous stamina and ability to create long improvised solos with a thematic continuity and logic reminiscent of Rollins - George Kanzler, All About Jazz, April 2009.
