|Andy Simpkins was a superbly swinging, but totally underrated, bass player possessing a wonderfully full tone and perfect intonation. The trio, with George Gaffney on Piano,which backed the great Sarah Vaughan in her last years was excellent. Sadly Gaffney has also passed on but a nice legacy has been left with the DVD 'Sarah Vaughan - The Devine one'. Buy it!!
And Sarah, George and Andy - RIP.
