Bert Courtley discography...
Bert Courtley and Don Rendell c1959 Born in 1929 trumpeter Bert Courtley had a dance band background, including Teddy Foster, Vic Lewis and Ken Mackintosh before becoming noticed in the musically excellent but short lived Kathy Stobart band at the beginning of the 1950s (Derek Humble was also in the band). He married Kathy in 1951 and the two succeeded in making their separate careers while Kathy gave birth to three sons. Courtley and bass player Jack Seymour co-led a big band for a time during 1956 and after short spells with Tubby Hayes, and the Jazz Today Unit he joined Don Rendell in 1957.

In 1958 he moved to The Johnny Dankworth Orchestra for a while and in the year following he formed part of the specially assembled "Anglo American Herd" led by Woody Herman. Alongside Renauld Jones, Nat Adderley, Les Condon and Kenny Wheeler he emerged as the strongest soloist in the section. He then co-lead a group with Ronnie Ross from 1960 to 1961 as well as free lancing, including working with the Harry South Big Band in the early 1960s.

From early 1960 he had been playing with Ted Heath, depping when needed, because he was a jazz player usually on third or fourth trumpet. One night in 1962 he played split lead with Bert Ezzard, Heath liked what he heard and within three days asked him to join the band. He actually replaced Bobby Pratt and was with the band until 1965 and later in 1967. Kathy Stobart gave a graphic interview to Jazz Journal (August 2000) in which she lays the blame for Bert's early death on the stresses of playing in the Heath band (right).

He suffered ill health before his early death in 1969 at the age of 40, newspaper reports giving the cause of death as alcoholic poisoning.
Kathy Stobart
Extract from an interview with Kathy Stobart Jazz Journal (August 2000)
"From early 1960 Bert had been playing with Ted Heath, depping when needed, because he was a jazz player usually on third or fourth trumpet. One night Bert Ezzard said 'You're going to have to play split lead tonight with me'. They always had a split lead for the trumpets because it was a very hard, high book to play. Apparently the band took off and within three days Ted (Heath) phoned and asked Bert to join the band. Bert was a good jazz player and his timing was very good, so when he played lead the whole thing started to go.
I didn't want him to join Ted. I knew what it was like. Lots of hard drinkers, alcoholics and addicts. It was a hard band. If you did anything wrong, everybody pointed the finger. There was a bitter thing in it. But it was good money. They were getting �60 or �70 a gig. In the 1960s that was a lot of money. The stress got more and more, then the hard drinking took over and he started to be ill with his stomach. He was taking bottles of a patent medicine which you could buy then, and was full of all sorts of things. It was addictive and eventually they banned it! His nerves were bad and finally he had to leave the band, because he was just going to pieces. It was sad.

We were fairly broke by then, Bert didn't have any work so to help out I took a job as a demonstrator at Bill Lewington's music instrument store in London's West End. During all that time Humphrey (Lyttelton) still employed me. I was the regular dep. I also had a casual quintet with trombone player John Picard in the late 1960s. The doctor told me that if Bert didn't look after himself he would kill himself. He succeeded! In September 1969 Bert died. It was two days after his 40th birthday".

All night long: In June and July,1961 Tubby Hayes, with Orchestra, Quartet, Sextet and Octet recorded the music from the film All night long for Fontana. Some titles are from the soundtrack itself. Film music does not usually reflect a jazz musician's best work the original soundtrack was available on a Harkit CD - (All Night Long - The original Soundtrack)., but this is now out of print. A number of tracks are available on a new (2013) Tubby Hayes compilation. The film is still available on DVD. Dave Brubeck and Charlie Mingus appear in scenes in the film...
