British drummer Pip Pyle (1950-2006) was once part of ‘Hatfield and the North’. Since a few years this group was performing again, at the Zomer Jazz Fiets Tour 2006 (Summer Jazz Bicycle Tour 2006) for example. A few days after that concert, Pip Pyle died of a heart attack. In this hour, a look back at his impressive career with recordings from 1973 to 2003.
