Terry Shannon discography...
Terry Shannon (1959) Born in London in 1929 Terry Shannon turned himself into probably the best of the British modern jazz pianists. He started playing in early childhood and was entirely self-taught, relying more on what could be gleaned from records than on academic training. Throughout his career he was a poor reader of music. He did local gigs, including a few with trumpet player Les Condon, but for eight years after leaving school worked in an office job with Esso. He became a professional musician with some trepidation, giving up security and regular wages to join the quartet of clarinettist Vic Ash in 1955.

He made his first record with Jimmy Deuchar and became a regular on the classic Tempo records of the mid 1950s recording with all the top names - Dizzy Reece, Ronnie Scott, Tubby Hayes and Victor Feldman. He had a sophisticated harmonic sense which coupled with his superb sense of time, and an assertive but never fussy accompaniment style together with an ability to build powerful solos lead to many of Britain's modernists naming him as their favourite pianist.

In 1957 Shannon joined the Jazz Couriers led by Ronnie Scott and Tubby Hayes, and it is hard to imagine a better setting for him. It is said that Tubby Hayes tolerated Shannon's poor sight reading skills because he admired his playing so much and his work throughout the four Jazz Couriers albums is that of a master pianist.

Hayes was quick to praise Shannon's contribution to the Couriers music, and when the band split in 1959 Shannon stayed on and spent much of the next five years working with Tubby's various groups.
When the Jazz Couriers split up he joined Ronnie Ross and Alan Ganley for a time in 1959 with the Jazz Makers. During the 1960s he worked regularly with Tubby Hayes in groups of all sizes and for a time had his own trio He was also in the Keith Christie / Jimmy Deuchar Five in 1965.

Shannon emerged from this period as an amazingly consistent performer with a genuine ability to play the blues in a convincing and sincere way. His career began to falter in the late 1960s, through a combination of the usual jazz vices and bitterness. In the late 1960s he worked with the Phil Seamen Trio and also had his own trio, but a long illness in the 1970s kept him off the scene and he quit playing for a number of years.

On his return in the 1980s he played occasional gigs as a freelance. He moved to South Humberside in 1988, returning to London five years later, finally settling in Lincolnshire. He then resumed regular playing in Sheffield, Manchester, etc in various groups.

Terry Shannon never did make the trio record that everybody wanted to hear. According to Tony Hall, who was the jazz record producer for Tempo records, "We discussed it in the last months of Tempo, but he hadn't got the confidence to do it. That was definately something I wanted him to do."
