Tubby Hayes - Inventivity

Product Code: CCS 79101/2
Availability: In Stock



This double CD is a timely reminder of the days when Ronnie Scott's Jazz club - then in its infancy - was functioning as the crucible in which British modern jazzmen met their American opposite numbers, often for the very first time. 

Inventivity documents the work of indisputably the greatest British jazz virtuoso of his generation, the late great saxophonist Tubby Hayes, a performer who has latterly achieved almost iconic status among a new generation of jazz listeners. 

The majority of the performances heard here find these guests augmenting Tubby's regular quintet of the day, a group whose tight-knit Hard Bop know-how was well showcased on the 1962 Fontana albums 'Late Spot' and 'Down in The Village.' Those familiar with these classic sessions will doubtless be fascinated at how Tubby and his sidemen react to the inherent looseness of these quite different off-the-cuff jams down at the 'Old Place' in Soho's Gerrard Street.
