Joy Unlimited (1975 / 2020)

A rare and long lost album by Harry Beckett - Joy Unlimited from 1975, has just been re-released. Beckett was born in Barbados and lived and worked for much of his life in Britain. The Observer jazz critic Dave Gelly thought that Beckett had " of the most beautiful trumpet tones I’ve ever heard".  

Late in his life he made an incredible album with Adrian Sherwood called The Modern Sound of Harry Beckett
