The “Salute to Humphrey Lyttelton” is to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Humphrey Lyttelton’s birth and to showcase his wonderful life, times and music.
Created by jazz trumpeter and life-long fan, Chris Hodgkins, the tour will highlight how Humphrey Lyttelton led the way for the jazz revival of the late 40’s and 50’s and brought jazz to the mainstream with the first UK jazz record to reach the Top20, ‘Bad Penny Blues’.
To do justice to Humph’s life and heritage, Chris Hodgkins, himself a stalwart of the British jazz scene, has put together an impressive ten-piece band featuring top UK and US musicians.
A travelling exhibition on Humph’s life and times will also accompany the tour and will consist of a multi-media presentation and visual archive display based on Humph’s writings and journals.
