Spike Robinson & Elaine Delmar

Spike Robinson was just about the last major tenor stylist who played in the Four Brothers' cool-toned style popularized by Stan Getz, Zoot Sims, and Al Cohn. The remarkable part is that Robinson seemed to emerge fully formed in 1981 when he was already past 50. Originally he started on alto when he was 12 and, after being in the military, in 1950 Robinson played with some of England's top bop musicians, recording with them. However, after he returned to the U.S., Robinson got a degree in engineering and had a day job in Colorado for the next 30 years, just gigging on a part-time basis in local clubs on tenor. When he began playing music full-time in 1981, Robinson initially created a bit of a sensation. Spike Robinson continued swinging (often sounding close to Stan Getz) and recorded many excellent sets for Discovery, Capri, Concord, and particularly Hep. He passed away in fall 2001 at his home in Writtle in southern England at the age of 71. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

This piece melts me like a chocolate on a warm sidewalk.... So Love it
OMG! An engineer, really? This guy should have been playing all along. Just shows that it's really NEVER too late to start. Didn't know about this guy until today. Thanks Pandora!
nifty lilting tone & smooth touch. One of UK's sax greats along with Johnny Dankworth, (marvelous Cleo Laines hubby) Tubby Hayes & crazy Jimmy Skidmore -whom I met & partied with on tour in the same 'digs' many years ago in my youth.
As a 54 year old undiscovered tenorist trying to play Jazz full time after a career outside of music, this gives me hope!
