Yes, thanks, I'd listened to some of them.
I would have liked more videos of him playing live, that's where he excelled.
None of his studio albums captured that essence.

The best recording I have of him is 'Perfect Pitch' from 1989, but the sound isn't great having been recorded at an Olympia exhibition.
The rest of the line up is pretty good, Brian Dee, Jim Mullen, Bobby Worth, Mario Castronari and Peter King.
It's on Spotlight SPJ540.

Cheers

Thanks
Do you think I'm correct in thinking that he recorded lots of 'library' recordings?
I've heard what sounds like Dick's playing on 'test-card' type recordings, I'm pretty sure it must be him.

Have you read his wiki page Alan? I am sure you will have ... :thumb:

I don't know the answer to your question though mate ...

Yes thanks, I thought it funny the way it's phrased about Peter King introducing him to the recordings of Charlie Parker, he specialised on tenor Saxophone shortly after.
I hadn't realised it's eleven years since he died though.
