Tubby Hayes – A Man in a Hurry film screening with the Simon Spillett Quartet
Edward Brian 'Tubby' Hayes left school to become professional jazz musician at just 15. By his untimely death at 38, Tubby Hayes had left behind a body of work which has both stood the test of time and has proven to be an inspiration to many like-minded musicians today.

 A household name in the early 1960s, complete with his own prime time TV series, Tubby performed with with the likes of Quincy Jones, Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington, Charlie Mingus, Roland Kirk and Henry Mancini to name just a few and played on the iconic film soundtracks for the films The Italian Job and Alfie.

Sadly, due to the rise of pop music, with the likes of The Beatles and The Rolling Stones changing the musical landscape of the UK, Tubby found his music falling out of demand. This, coupled with a drug habit and persistent ill health, meant that he faded from view, almost a forgotten man by his untimely death in 1973.

However, in the last few years, interest in Tubby has been rekindled. “The whole period in London, and Soho in particular, fascinates me,” says Weller. “The new and modern developments in jazz, art, architecture and social mores. The sound of post-war Britain and its youth finding its own feet.” - Paul Weller, songwriter
