Humph

Humph made life better. I first became aware of him on I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue in the early ’90s, going to several recordings and enjoying his extraordinary dead pan wit.

Through The Best of Jazz he enlarged my interest in music and introduced me to a variety of wonderful artists.

Humph died at 7pm yesterday. I will miss hearing him.
