Farewell George Martin


George Martin's name will forever be associated with The Beatles, and quite rightly so, but I've looked elsewhere in his broad production back-catalogue to select a couple of non-Fab related tunes with which to mark his passing. From the sublime 'Dum Dum' by The Stan Getz Quartet, recorded live at Ronnie Scott's Club in 1971 and featuring a great keyboard solo by Eddy Louise, to Spike Milligan's ridiculous and inspired 'Q5 Piano Tune' from 1969.

George Martin - a long life, well lived. RIP.

What a career. To be honest, I've never been very clear about what he did after The Beatles but he was definitely a genius and they would have struggled without him, which says it all. RIP, sir.
