      Indeed it is a sad loss and I share a little of your grief. He deserves to be remembered for his significant contribution to the development of the best that fusion has to offer. Jazz rock is not always a successful blend, and is too often bland or even corny. But original, creative minds like those with whom Jeff Clyne worked were fully mastering both genres because of their great musicianship, with the result that groups like Nucleus or the Keith Tippett Group were outstanding successes for the genre.

      Jeff Clyne made many a fusion/ and more or less Canterbury fan very, very happy, and his departure is sad news.

      My friend Leonardo Pavkovic just informed me that Jeff Clyne died
      last night.

      He was a fantastic and creative English acoustic bassist playing jazz
      and free music in the 1960s with John Stevens, Ian Carr, Keith
      Tippett, Michael Gibbs etc and also moving into early jazz-rock (the
      original bassist with Nucleus and Isotope also in Gilgamesh), among
      many, many others.

      thanks for your indulgence. I always really liked his work and wanted
      to take

        Hi everyone,


        my thoughts were cut off my my own incompetence, but I just wanted to
        say that I wanted to take a moment out of my (and perhaps your) day
        to acknowledge his work and artistry.
