While their studies at Glasgow University or college, Goode started playing violin, later on switching to bass. He 1st played expertly in 1942 and was quickly working in night clubs, on radio and information with noted Western and UK performers such as for example Johnny Claes, Stéphane Grappelli, Django Reinhardt and George Shearing. In the first 40s he performed with Eric Winstone’s showband and in 1944 joined up with Leslie ‘Jiver’ Hutchinson’s all-black music group, one of the primary of its kind in the united kingdom. Later within the 40s he became a member of Ray Ellington and ten years later was an associate of Joe Harriott’s free-form quintet. Within the 60s Goode was associated with Michael Garrick and in addition led his personal organizations, which, like Harriott’s, experimented, using the fusion of Indian music and jazz. Within the middle-70s Goode teamed up with pianist Iggy Quayle, a link that persisted for over 2 decades.
