Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. James "Jimmy" Deuchar (26 June 1930 - 9 September 1993) was a jazz trumpeter and big band arranger, born in Dundee, Scotland. He found fame as a performer and arranger in the 1950s and 1960s. Deuchar was taught trumpet by John Lynch, who learned bugle as a boy soldier in the First World War and who later was Director of Brass Music for Dundee. After National Service, Deuchar worked with the seminal British modern jazz unit, the Johnny Dankworth Seven (1950-51). During the 1950s, he worked with a number of commercial bands, such as the Oscar Rabin Band, and also intermittently with Ronnie Scott. In the late 1950s he worked with Kurt Edelhagen's orchestra in Germany.show more
