Joy Unlimited: the Sound of Harry Beckett
Joy Unlimited: the Sound of Harry Beckett

When Harry met Stanley

With massive thanks to Stephen Didymus, who has created and maintains THE Stan Tracey discography – parts of which will be used in the forthcoming Clark Tracey penned ‘Godfather of British Jazz’ biog – here are ‘just’ the 42 sessions, gigs, concerts or radio/TV recordings that Harry Beckett played on with Stan.

 

Stephen has kindly ‘donated’ this to our Harry Beckett website/biography as we understand the sessionography in Clark’s book won't include broadcasts or private recordings unless they have been issued.

 

The session numbering system is the one that Stephen uses in his complete list.

 

Enjoy and please let us know if you find anything that needs corecting ….
