b. Jeffrey Ovid Clyne, 29 January 1937, London, Britain. An admirer of Scott La Faro, Eddie Gomez, Jaco Pastorius and Stanley Clarke, Clyne is really a versatile performer for the electrical and regular basses and was very much in demand through the entire 60s and 70s for his capability to contribute to an array of designs. He built in similarly comfortably using the fusion of Turning Stage or the free of charge experimentalism from the Spontaneous Music Outfit (SME). He’s mainly self-taught, although he do spend time learning with orchestral players and, similar to British players of the vintage, gained useful encounter during his Country wide Service within the middle-50s. After spells with Tony Crombie’s Rockets and Stan Tracey he became a member of the Jazz Couriers, co-led by tenor saxophonists Ronnie Scott and Tubby Hayes, in 1958. Clyne’s association with Hayes continuing for another 10 years roughly, but he also caused a complete string of important bands through the following 2 decades. He was a genuine person in the SME, and somebody in its sister music group, Trevor W’ Amalgam. Within the middle-60s he caused Tracey once again, his warm audio contributing very much to 1965’s acclaimed Jazz Collection Influenced By Under Dairy Wood. After taking on the bass acoustic guitar Clyne became a creator person in Ian Carr’s Nucleus, from 1969-71. Turning Stage was founded with Pepi Lemer in 1976. He in addition has caused Gary Boyle’s Isotope, Alan Gowen’s Gilgamesh, John McLaughlin, Tony Oxley, Keith Tippett’s Centipede, Dudley Moore, Blossom Dearie, Norma Winstone, Lucky Thompson, Zoot Sims, Phil Woods, Phil Lee, Eddie ‘Lockjaw’ Davis, as well as the London Jazz Composers Orchestra.
