Michael Garrick 1933-2011 RIP


Recommended Posts

I'm shocked

didn't realise he was unwell (cardiac issues)

was always fond of the comment Cook & Morton made in their tomes "When the big audit is completed, Britain will find itself in trouble for not having disclosed a national asset on the scale of Michael Garrick"

Only just got one of his recently released (Trunk) earlier recordings with Shake Keane (Rising Stars)

I'm speechless. This is a terrible shock. :(

Really regret now not being able to see his MJQ Tribute last year at Swanage but on the plus side I did get to hear his trio and the reunion sextet with Don Rendell, Art Themen and Norma Winstone a few years ago. Last time I saw him was at Ian Carr's tribute I think.

The elders of British progressive jazz are getting decimated this year. Here's thanking Mr Garrick for his superb music though and may he rest in peace.
