Real Name:
Alan Haven
Profile:
Alan Haven (Born 1 April 1935 Died 12 Jan 2016) , Prestwich, Lancashire, United Kingdom) was an English, self taught, jazz organist. He married Miss World, Lesley Langly in the 60's.
Alan Haven enjoyed success with John Barry on the soundtracks to 1960s film classics including The Knack, Goldfinger, From Russia with Love and critical acclaim for his performances and recordings with jazz drumming supremo Tony Crombie. He further scored a surprise single hit with his recording of “Image”.
In 1969 and 1971 Haven recorded two albums for CBS, a mix of originals by Haven with his arrangements of covers. All benefiting from the distinctive Haven Lowrey Heritage keyboard sounds which he had been developing throughout the 1960s. “Haven For Sale” featured jazz trumpeter Maynard Ferguson and direction from Keith Mansfield. “St. Elmo’s Fire” saw Haven experiment more with the keyboards and its effects, also producing and including more originals than before. Both these LPs were released on a short-lived CD in 2010.
