Christmas comes early for fans of the late, great Brit-jazz tenorist Tubby Hayes as Universal have announced the arrival of an unreleased 1969 studio album, entitled Grits, Beans and Greens: The Lost Fontana Sessions, which is to be released on 26 July, 50 years after its recording.

The tapes were in perfect condition and had never been played since the recording, with reports suggesting the music ranks as highly as Hayes’ classic albums 100% Proof and Mexican Green. Alongside this the label also possesses all of the original tapes for Hayes’ 11 Fontana albums, plus lots of out-takes and never before issued material, all of which will be remastered and reissued in one mighty Tubby Hayes on Fontana box set.

And, in a further move to ensure maximum collectability, all of the albums have been remastered by Gearbox Records, with the LPs being cut to the lacquers directly from the tapes, the resulting pure analogue sound potentially better than the original LPs. Hayes expert Simon Spillett has contributed liner notes to the set which will also features dozens of rare or unseen photos of Tubby in his heyday. “It’s hard to believe that this music has lain unheard for fifty years, it’s so fresh” says Spillett. “There’s no doubt in my mind that had they been issued at the time, these recordings would have been seen as Tubby’s last great album”.

See the July issue of Jazzwise for an in-depth feature on this newly discovered album from one of Britain’s most celebrated jazz musicians.

Music Freelance Five of the best: celebrity saxophonists


1) Bill Clinton US President

Music’s loss was politics’ gain in 1962, when the first tenor saxophone in the Arkansas state band decided he’d gone as far as he could with the instrument. ‘I loved music and thought I could be very good,’ wrote Bill Clinton many years later, ‘but I knew I would never be John Coltrane or Stan Getz.’


2) Alastair Cook Cricketer
A chorister at St Paul’s Cathedral as a youngster, England’s cricket captain went on to take up the saxophone at school. He still plays today and, in 2008, gamely put his skills to the test by agreeing to record a solo for the soundtrack of the BBC’s animated TV series Freefonix.



3) Ronald McNair Astronaut
In January 1986, Ronald McNair, a very accomplished saxophonist, was planning to make musical history by being the first person to record a piece of new music up in space – the work in question was by composer Jean Michel Jarre, with whom he had been collaborating. Tragically, the mission it was intended for ended in catastrophe, when the Challenger space shuttle exploded soon after take-off, killing all seven crew.


4) Lisa Simpson Cartoon schoolgirl
Simpsons fans have become familiar with the baritone saxophone. In each episode’s opening sequence, Lisa, Bart Simpson’s younger sister, plays an impromptu solo in her school band before heading with her sax down the corridor. Don’t pretend you haven’t seen it.


5) Jude Law Actor
Jude Law prepared for the part of Dickie Greenleaf in the 1999 film The Talented Mr Ripley by learning the saxophone, an instrument he’s shown playing during a night out at a jazz club. That’s ‘playing’ in the loosest sense – Law puts lips to sax in ‘Tu vuò fà l’americano’ and ‘My funny Valentine’, but his fingers don’t move a great deal…
