Harry Beckett RIP

Harry Beckett RIP Jamaican born trumpeter and flugelhornist Harry Beckett was one of the most hard working and adaptable players in UK jazz, playing with everyone from Chris McGregor to Jack Bruce. He's heard to great effect on this too, which is probably where I first heard him. He wasn't averse to spot of free improvisation either. He'll be much missed.

I love that Weekend track so much, it's been a while since I dug out the Vinyl.

His stuff was amazing; I especially liked his work with Robert Wyatt.
