Publisher's Summary

Humphrey Lyttleton - Bandleader, cartoonist, writer, chairman of BBC Radio 4's I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue, president of the Society for Italic Handwriting and doyen of jazz trumpeters. In conversation with June Knox-Mawer, Humphrey Lyttleton reflects on his extraordinary life; from schooldays at Eton and playing out Roll Out the Barrel outside Buckingham Palace on VE Day to the formation of this band in 1948 and his emergence as 'the godfather of British jazz'.

It's a wry, witty and wonderful story told in his characteristically urbane style and peppered with some of his own great jazz favourites.

    "Great background"

    A wonderful background piece on the incomparable Humph.You may only know him from I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue, but his jazz history is important to the history of Jazz in England.
