One of Britian's better bebop trumpeters, Jimmy Deuchar played in London's Club Eleven while in the Royal Air Force, then joined the Johnny Dankworth Seven in 1950. He later played with Geraldo and Oscar Rabin and Ronnie Scott's sextet in Paris in 1951. There were recording sessions with Jack Parnell and Scott in the early '50s, followed by stints and/or tours with Tony Crombie, Lionel Hampton and Scott. Deuchar moved to Germany in the late '50s, and played from 1957 to 1959 with Kurt Edelhagen's band. He returned to Scott's group for a couple of years, then played in Tubby Hayes' quartet, The Clarke-Boland Big Band and Edelhagen's band. Deuchar worked mainly as an arranger during the '60s and '70s, making one album as a leader in 1979. ~ Ron Wynn, Rovi
