A Life in Music: Calyx

This is one of two quite different arrangements of the perennial Phil Miller classic performed that day – this is the stripped down version, with Jakko Jakszyk on vocals and Sarah Gail Brand on trombone stating the main theme (in Jakko’s case, singing the lyrics Robert Wyatt penned when he guested with Hatfield for a couple of ‘big band’ gigs in 1974). Rick Biddulph plays rhythm guitar, reuniting with his former Rapid Eye Movement bandmate Jakko, and Alex Maguire on piano joins the In Cahoots rhythm section of Fred Baker and Mark Fletcher.
