Humphrey Lyttelton

Humphrey Lyttelton (b. May 23, 1921) is a well-known British jazz musician and chairman of the radio programme I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue.

In the 1950s Lyttelton led the British "trad jazz" movement, a revival of traditional Dixieland and older jazz forms, from New Orleans to early Duke Ellington. In 2001, Lyttleton and his band added trad jazz elements to a free-form, experimental Radiohead song "Life In A Glass House" on the Amnesiac album.
