Harry Beckett

Barbados-born Harry Beckett was one of the most fiery and inventive trumpeters in British jazz, right up until his death in July this year. Chris Batchelor joins Alyn Shipton to look back at Beckett's recordings, and to pick his best performances. As well as a range of music from his own bands, the programme includes Beckett's work with Ian Carr, Mike Westbrook and Graham Collier.
