HUMPH (Humphrey Lyttelton)

Mrs DeeJay and I went to see the Humphrey Lyttelton Band on Friday and it was well worth the trip.
I knew that he was 'getting on a bit' but hadn't realised that he is actually 86! He has obviously slowed down a bit, spends some of the set sitting on a stool and has definitely handed over much of the limelight to some of the other band members, but WOW can he still blow a trumpet.

The only disappointing thing about the gig was that he did not play Bad Penny Blues.

Once more, no pics yet but if the ones I took on my camera phone are any good I will post them later
