    ‘Brixton Baby’ from Ty’s final album ‘A Work Of Heart’ (2018), with Mpho Skeef vocals, Andrew Horley drums/keyboards, Akwasi Mensah piano/synth bass and Julian Siegel bass clarinet/clarinet. The accompanying video, which features the people, sights and sounds of Brixton, is rather wonderful too.

    British rapper Ty (Ben Chijioke) died last year from Covid-related pneumonia at the age of only 47. Although he was Mercury-nominated for ‘Upwards’ (2003), the second of only five albums that he recorded between 2001 and 2018, I always felt that he didn’t receive the level of recognition that he properly deserved. There was a humour and intelligence in his lyrics that is all too rare in hip-hop/RnB circles, and a proper sense of musicality that drew heavily on soul and jazz influences, using live instrumentation rather than lazily-sourced samples. This is ‘Music 2 Fly 2’ from ’Upwards’, with Andrew Horley drums/keyboards, Jean-Phillippe Dary keyboards, Jason Yarde saxophone / bass clarinet, Mark Crown trumpet, Joe Bentley trombone, Trevor Antonio percussion, Bembe Segue vocals, Marcia Escoffery vocals and the Basquiat Strings. (Unfortunately, the video I have linked to isn’t the best but it’s the only one available. After the song finishes there are a few minutes of silence before the album ‘bonus track’ ‘Inner Love’).

    Second was ‘Ferry Cross The Mersey’ from the 2004 solo album ‘One Quiet Night’, with Metheny playing a specially-built baritone guitar. Recorded alone in the studio over the course of a single evening – just him, the guitar and a couple of microphones. Coincidentally, I had thought about posting this on the Gerry Marsden thread following his death earlier this year but never got around to it.

    That I’ve got this far into the thread without properly featuring Pat Metheny, my favourite artist of all time, is solely down to having to pick from over 50 albums (under his own name or in collaboration with other artists). Narrowing that down to three tunes seemed a bit of a task, so I put it to one side until yesterday, when I decided to stick them all on shuffle and choose the first ones to emerge. First up was ‘Across The Sky’ from the 1997 album ‘Imaginary Day’, with Metheny on electric guitar, Lyle Mays keyboards, David Blamires vocals and acoustic guitar, Mark Ledford vocals and flugelhorn, Steve Rodby bass, Paul Wertico drums and Mino Cinelu percussion.

    The title track from John Clark’s 1980 album ‘Song Of Light’, with Michael Cochrane piano, Ron McClure bass, Victor Lewis drums and Clark on French horn, an instrument rarely heard on jazz records, particularly in a solo capacity.
