Jeff Clyne was a virtuoso bass player. Starting with a short spell as a military bandsman in 1955 he then played in London with Tony Crombie's Rockets and with Stan Tracey. In 1958, he joined the Jazz Couriers, a group co-led by Tubby Hayes and Ronnie Scott and Britain's answer to Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers. He continued to work with Hayes' various groups for about ten years. Clyne was the bass player on the Tubby Hayes big band album, 100% Proof. In the early 60's, Clyne also worked with such avant-garde groups as the Spontaneous Music Ensemble and Amalgam, led by John Stevens and Trevor Watts
