The Tubby Hayes Quintet Modes and Blues: 8th February 1964 Limited 180gram Vinyl LP

Overview:
Previously unreleased mono recording of Modes and Blues from the Tubby Hayes Quintet's weekly Ronnie Scott's residency on 8th February 1964. A masterwork of British modern jazz, Modes and Blues channels the new musical flavours and inspirations that Tubby Hayes had absorbed from the cutting edge of jazz and the new directions of John Coltrane. Hayes digs in deep with marathonlike, breathtaking solos, trumpeter Jimmy Deuchar delivers his characteristically lyrical improvisation, and there's dynamic interplay and drive from the great Terry Shannon, Freddy Logan and Allan Ganley rhythm section. The Quintet had barely a few months left to run at the time of this performance, splitting in August 1964, fearing its music had atrophied into self-parody. Modes and Blues is among its many triumphs, a performance that shows how high the band had set the aspirational bar for British modernism, and, as such, is as much a cultural document as a musical souvenir.
