Stan Tracey, Bobby Wellins and the awards…

The Ivors Jazz Award - Stan Tracey

The Ivor Novello Awards have presented their first ever Ivors Jazz Award to one of our greatest musicians, the wonderful Stan Tracey, who is still composing and playing beautifully crafted and inventive jazz in his eighties. Here’s a short commentary from London Jazz on the award.

It’s fitting that one of Stan’s long-time musical partners, saxophonist Bobby Wellins, has also been honoured recently by winning the Jazz Musician of the Year in the Parliamentary Jazz Awards.

For info on Stan, here is his own website; and here is the Little Klunk site which has lots of fascinating stories and background details about his life.

Here is Bobby’s website.
