LYLE JENKINS info
I can't hide that Keef Hartley Band is one of my
favourite groups. Little by little, I'm going to include all their members
in my site.
Lyle Jenkins was born in Birmingham on November
He played in several local bands, such as Norman
Dovey's Jump Band or Tommy Burton's Hot House Band, but I don't have more
info about lineups or periods.
When they were recording their third album, The
time is near, Lyle joins Keef Hartley Band along with his mate
Dino Dines comes back to the band for a while.
But the new members don't stay long time in the band,
and they leave the band in December 1970, after recording some superb sessions
for BBC Radio 1. Lyle and Dave still appear in their forthcoming album,
And, sadly, I haven't been able to find more info
on Lyle Jenkins, except for a few sessions, usually shared with Dave Caswell.
Has anybody got any clue about his musical career after that, please?
The only info I got was an ad for a band called
The Stateside Stompers, and they had a sax player
called Lyle Jenkins, around year 2000. I guess they're the same person,
but I can't be sure. This was the lineup:
Other bands where he has been
involved are: Tony Barry & The Steamers, and The City Slickers, but
I can't find details. Help, please.
Robin Smith (trumpet)
Malcolm Harrison (guitar, banjo)
Lyle Jenkins (sax)
Bill Boston (sax, clarinet)
John Gowers (clarinet, vocals)
Peter Hodge (trombone)
Andy Grappy (tuba)
Adam Precious (bass)
Steve Higgins (keyboards, vocals)
Bobby Worth (drums)
Questions for me:
1. Was Lyle a member of Gaillard,
or just played sessions with them? Same question I'd have for Dave Caswell.
2. Has Lyle played with
Roy Wood in the early days?
3. I have some TV live footage
from Ashton Gardner & Dyke, and they carry a horn section. Who were
they? Maybe Caswell and Jenkins? Who else? Does anybody know?
