Dick Heckstall-Smith

Real Name:
Richard Malden Heckstall-Smith
Profile:
Born: September 26, 1934, in Ludlow, England
Died: December 17, 2004.
English saxophonist and composer, played a major role in bringing British Blues and Jazz to the forefront of the world music scene. He was part of one of the important, yet unfortunately over-looked bands, such as the Graham Bond Organization, which also included upstarts Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker. Dick had a long career being part of other legendary bands such as Blues Incorporated, John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, Colosseum, Mainsqueeze and many other solo projects.
As a performer, Dick was one of the finest showmen of the era, able to play two horns at once and keeping the audience glued to him at all times. He had an amazing charisma both on stage and off.
Eagle Rock Entertainment/BlueStorm Music released Dick Heckstall Smith and Friends, Blues and Beyond CD in 2001, which was nominated for a WC Handy Award.
