JAZZ giant Humphrey Lyttelton’s links with Eastleigh’s Concorde Club go back to the early sixties.

Through the iconic BBC Radio Four programme I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue and his distinctive jazz style he became a national treasure and the Stoneham Lane club was one of his last gigs before he died at the age of 86 in 2008. That’s where he gave his last interview to former Daily Echo journalist Duncan Eaton.

And Humph’s rich musical legacy lives on thanks to a talented line-up of musicians who were with him for six decades.

Members of the late Humphrey Lyttelton’s band will be at The Concorde tomorrow as part of the club’s 60th anniversary celebrations. They will be joined by trumpeter Mike ‘Magic’ Henry.

At the time of his death Old Etonian Humph had been the oldest active panel game host in the UK, chairing the legendary hit radio show I’m Sorry I Have’t Clue. He was famed for his deadpan style of chairmanship and his near knuckle double entendres.

Humph produced more than 200 jazz compositions, including Bad Penny Blues which was the first British jazz record to get in the top 20. He wrote a foreword to the book celebrating The Concorde’s 50th anniversary, which rolled off the presses on the day the veteran broadcaster died, and paid tribute to owner Cole Mathieson.
