Dick Heckstall-Smith

Real Name:
Richard Malden Heckstall-Smith
Profile:
Born: September 26, 1934, in Ludlow, Shropshire, England
Died: December 17, 2004 in Hampstead, London, England
English saxophonist and composer who played a major role in bringing British Blues and Jazz to the forefront of the world music scene. He was part of one of music's most important, yet unfortunately over-looked, bands of the 1960's, The Graham Bond Organization, which also included Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker. Dick also had a long career in other legendary bands such as Blues Incorporated, John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers, Colosseum, Mainsqueeze, as well as many solo projects. As a performer, Dick was one of the finest showmen of the era, able to play two horns at once and keep the audience glued to him at all times. He had an amazing charisma both on stage and off. Eagle Rock Entertainment/Blue Storm Music released Dick Heckstall-Smith And Friends* - Blues And Beyond in 2001, which was nominated for a WC Handy Award.
