Featuring exclusive interviews with people who knew, worked and gigged with Tubby, as well as his many and varied fans, the film charts the life and times of perhaps Britain’s greatest jazz exponent.

A professional jazz musician at just fifteen, by his untimely death at thirty-eight, Edward Brian ‘Tubby’ Hayes had left behind a body of work which has both stood the test of time and has proven to be an inspiration to many like-minded musicians today. 

For ten years from the mid-1950s to the middle to late 1960s, he became a household name in Britain, with a growing reputation overseas.

Among those interviewed are Sir Peter Blake, jazz poet Michael Horovitz, DJs Eddie Piller and Patrick Forge, broadcaster Robert Elms, legendary drummer Spike Wells and Tubby Hayes’ biographer Simon Spillett.

Described by the late Humphrey Lyttelton as "formidable," Simon Spillett is a British jazz saxophonist who leads his own quartet celebrating the legacy of British jazz legend Tubby Hayes. He has won several awards for his music, including the tenor saxophone category of the British Jazz Awards (2011), Jazz Journal magazine's Critic's Choice CD of the Year (2009) and Rising Star in the BBC Jazz Awards (2007). He has also worked as a writer, penning the definitive biography of Tubby Hayes (The Long Shadow Of The Little Giant, Equinox) and articles for magazines including Jazz Journal and Record Collector. 

A Mono Media Film, produced by Mark Baxter and Sam Pattinson and directed by Lee Cogswell.
