Fontana"Tubby Hayes - The Complete Fontana Albums 1961 - 1969 (13 CD boxset)"
Tubby Hayes is undoubtedly one of the most important, influential and ground breaking UK musicians of all time. During the 1950s and early 1960s Hayes had stood apart from many of his UK-based contemporaries, displaying a self-confidence and virtuoso musical delivery that placed him neck-and-neck with many of the leading American jazzmen of the day. He worked with the likes of Quincy Jones, Ella Fitzgerald, Charles Mingus and Duke Ellington and his many fans included Miles Davis, Cannonball Adderley and Sonny Rollins. He had his own primetime TV show and was the face of UK jazz. His premature death in 1973, aged just 38, left a legacy that many critics and fellow artists point towards Tubby as the first UK artist to put British jazz solidly on the global map.

This 13CD clamshell box set, remastered from the original tape masters, featuring previously unreleased material across Tubby Hayes’ Fontana years comes with a 152 page booklet with extensive liner notes by Hayes’ biographer Simon Spillett. With 5” square CD wallets with spines and plain inner sleeves and Original Artwork as facsimile sleeves, except CD2 Equation In Rhythm / Palladium Jazz Date is hybrid artwork.
Mastering Notes: The recordings have been lovingly remastered at Gearbox Records’ Studios, London, directly from the original tapes, using a Studer C37 ¼-inch stereo tape machine. They were then equalised through an all-valve mastering desk built bespoke for Decca studios in the late 1950s, Vintage Lang Pultec EQ, Prism Maselec EQ and Telefunken U73b valve limiters from 1959. track listing...
