About Us

In the autumn of 1998, we started a short series of jazz concerts in church, with encouragement from our then vicar, David Tuck. Various musicians played for us, amongst them Humphrey Lyttelton and Martin Klute. We did not expect that annual jazz seasons would be going from strength to strength in Pinner Parish Church so many years later! Welcome...

Humphrey Lyttelton Band

17/03/2018, 20:00

And so we come to the last of the last, and what better band to see us off into the quiet backwaters of retirement than the Humphrey Lyttelton Band? Humph, the consummate broadcaster, master trumpeter and long-term bandleader supported us right from the off, appearing for us a number of times before he passed away in 2008. He left a fabulous repertoire of original material and a band style that was instantly recognisable – swinging mainstream jazz at its best, each soloist to be treasured. Star trumpeter Tony Fisher has the difficult job of emulating Humph - after all, no one could really replace the great man – and the rest of the band are all Humph-era veterans who know his music inside-out. They are Jimmy Hastings, saxophone and clarinet, Robert Fowler, saxophone, Ray Wadsworth, trombone, Ted Beament, piano, John Rees Jones, bass, and drummer Adrian Mackintosh. What did we say about shedding the odd tear? So, it’s goodbye from them and goodbye from us. And thanks too!
