Neil Ardley

Neil Ardley
Neil Ardley, who died on February 23 aged 66, achieved distinction in two entirely separate professions, as a jazz composer and an author of informative books for young people; in the former role he wrote and recorded such acclaimed albums as Le Dejeuner Sur l’Herbe and Kaleidoscope Of Rainbows, while in the latter his work sold more than 10 million copies worldwide.
[Neil Ardley composed what I consider the best Lear arrangement with his and Ivor Cutler’s version of “The Dong with a Luminous Nose”.]
