Dear I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue Mailing List Member

This is to bring you news of a memorial concert for Humphrey Lyttelton on the evening of Sunday 25th April at the Hammermsith HMV Apollo, which is being organised by Humph's son Stephen, who has set up a charitable fund in his father's name to assist talented young jazz musicians.  The concert will serve both as a memorial to Humph and a fund-raiser for the charity, which will operate in conjunction with the Royal Academy of Music's jazz department.  The team from 'I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue' will be taking part, and tickets go on sale on Monday 1st March.  You are advised to book early to avoid disappointment!

Here's how the concert describes itself:

Humphrey Lyttelton - A Celebration Concert
Launching The Humphrey Lyttelton Royal Academy of Music Jazz Award
Sunday 25th April HMV Apollo

The life and work of Humphrey Lyttelton, jazz musician and broadcaster, is celebrated in a unique concert that brings together band members, guest musicians and the I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue team for an evening of jazz and joviality that will raise funds for the Humph Trust.

Never one to revel in his own popularity, Humph got tremendous joy from encouraging and assisting the work of young jazz musicians. The aim of the Trust will be to build on this legacy by supporting and developing the careers of budding new talent.

The Humphrey Lyttelton Royal Academy of Music Jazz Award
Humphrey Lyttelton championed jazz music in the United Kingdom for his entire career. Having a more prominent position in the jazz scene than almost all other jazz musicians in the UK, this was clearly beneficial to an often under publicised form of music.

There is a lot to be proud of in jazz music coming out of the UK these days and The Royal Academy of Music has produced many of the exciting new wave of talented jazz artists on the current national/international scene.

"At the age of 15, I met Humph for the first time on a concert and his enthusiasm and encouragement had a profound effect on me, inspiring me to practise and also to feel part of a tradition and lineage. I was also even more pleased, when meeting Humph over subsequent years, that he always asked me how I was getting on and showed genuine interest! It is therefore a great pleasure to see this award set up in Humphrey Lyttelton's name at the Academy, to help create support and guidance into jazz for future generations of players."
Gerard Presencer, Head of Jazz, Royal Academy of Music.
