«it adds a nice touch.»
Review by GruvanDahlman Prog Reviewer. The opening track 'Future song' is great with it's repetative riff and hard, driving sound. The following 'Crabs' is irresistable. It holds so many moods and swings to and fro in a seamless manner.
Amanda Seyfried. Age: 31. Spectacular looks and crazy charisma and temperament will carry you into the world of sexuality and seduction. My creative approach will not leave you indifferent.
Interview with DICK HECKSTALL-SMITH
Interview with DICK HECKSTALL-SMITH | sacdrupal.org
The story of his life is well documented both in his own book and here, in the reproductions of the fulsome obituaries that he received in the UK national press. As an avid news-a-holic, who found endless delights buried in newspapers and magazines, he would have loved to have read them. The last time we played with him was in May We had been discussing his return to Colosseum for our summer festival appearances. He had been in and out of Hospital since the last days of the recording of our Tomorrows Blues album in the late spring of and all through the long tour of that autumn we had booked his plane ticket for every flight, and a hotel room in every town. But always a complication arose to keep him from joining us and Barbara, who thought she was just playing a few gigs till he got back, began to realise that she had probably joined another band.
Paolla Oliveira. Age: 29. Gorgeous Woman! Powerful and passionate! Make your dreams come true! I can hard, I can gently!) really looking for some, and very cool strapon! Waiting for my submissive.
Jon Hiseman’s Tribute to Dick Heckstall-Smith
Dick Heckstall-Smith was born in the Royal Free Hospital, in Ludlow , Shropshire , England,  and was raised in Knighton , Radnorshire , learning to play piano, clarinet and alto saxophone in childhood. He attended a York boarding school but refused a second term there, instead enrolling in Gordonstoun , where his father had accepted a job as headmaster of the local grammar school. Heckstall-Smith completed his education at Dartington Hall School , before reading agriculture — and co-leading the university jazz band — at Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge , from Then Lester Young and tenor saxophonist bebop jazzman Wardell Gray proved to be major influences for him. Heckstall-Smith was an active member of the London jazz scene from the late s including a six-month stint from December with the band led by clarinettist Sandy Brown.
The British music scene of the early s was loose, creative and open; it accommodated jazz, blues and rock'n'roll, and produced originals such as Georgie Fame and John McLaughlin. Less celebrated, although just as musical, virtuosic, and, in his own way, influential, was the post-bebop saxophonist Dick Heckstall-Smith, a key member of the jazz-blues scene, who has died aged Heckstall-Smith understood the postwar ethos of modern jazz as cool, oblique, even obscure - and avoided it. A big, black-bespectacled man, often in a workman's cap, he blasted out tenor-sax epithets with legs planted wide apart like a weightlifter. Following Rahsaan Roland Kirk's example, he unleashed boneshaking chords, playing more than one sax simultaneously; while his proximity to amplified rock and blues rhythm sections meant that he subjected the melodically devious methods of his heroes, including Lester Young and Sonny Rollins, to a direct, fiercely punctuated approach.
