GORDON BECK TRIO - GYROSCOPE (LP)


record store day 2018 release "Born in London in 1935, the young Gordon Beck received classical piano lessons from his violinist father. However, at that time it didn't appear that music would be his career, and when he was 21 he emigrated to Canada to follow a career in aero-engineering. However, he kept up his musical interests, and on his return to London he took up with renowned saxophonist Peter King's quartet at Ronnie Scott's club. In 1962 he 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."
