Live At The BBC And Other Stories

Album Review

Prime cuts and choice oddments from a British secret agent of cool jazz and R&B.

Despite making his recording debut in 1962, the same year that an Edinburgh milkman immortalised 007 in Dr No, this Mr Bond missed the bullseye of the big time. The Essex-born fridge-salesman-turned-bandleader did succeed in shaking and stirring the jazz and R&B scene, though, first on alto sax, then by making the Hammond organ/Leslie speaker combo cooler than the Arctic.
