PRESS RELEASE - ELTON DEAN MEMORIAL CONCERT
On February 8 th 2006, sadly, the jazz world lost one of the major contributors to the development of jazz and improvised music here in England and Europe during the mid sixties to a week before his death.
Working with many different aspects of this creative community from Keith Tippetts’ small groups, they met at the Barry Summer school with Nick Evans and Mark Charig, Centipede, Ark and Tapestry Orchestra, to Robert Wyatt and Hugh Hopper in the Soft Machine, Brotherhood of Breath, to his own groups quartets, quintet, the famous Ninesense, and many more. He was a truly individual, professional, and very creative saxophonist, who will be sorely missed.
On May 9th at the 100 Club in London many of the musicians who were his friends and fellow travellors along this road will play in tribute to him. This is only a selection others not included will be organising further events in his memory.
