LP Record Store Day 2018 Limited Edition
In 1962 Gordon Beck joined Tubby Hayes’ band before his own trio became the house band at Ronnie Scott’s in the late 1960’s. In 1969, as part of a trio with Jeff Clyne (also a Tubby Hayes and Ronnie Scott’s veteran) and Tony Oxley (previously Ronnie Scott’s house drummer), he made his only recording for the tiny Morgan label - the “Gyroscope” album.
The Daily Telegraph, in its obituary of Gordon (who died in 2011), said of Gyroscope that it was, “a mature and vastly impressive set of original compositions that attracted much critical praise.”
Tracks: Gyroscope / Clusters / Suite No.1 / Miss T Fying / Sincerity / And Still She Is With Me/Oxus
