Humphrey Lyttelton, RIP

Sad news: Humphrey Lyttelton has died, aged 86, following surgery for an aortic aneurysm.

The host of Radio 4’s I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue, the panel show game that gave rise to the Mornington Crescent phenomenon, “Humph” was of course a legendary jazz musician too.


Radiohead‘s South Park, Oxford gig featured a set from him, and his improvisational style was said to have influenced the band’s Kid A and Amnesiac jazz stylings.
