Your obituary of the fine jazz pianist and composer Michael Garrick (16 November) referred to a record he made while at university with Joe Harriott and Shake Keane entitled Blues for the Lonely.
That EP was in fact a poetry and jazz record made with the poet Jeremy Robson: that title was actually the title of one of his poems on the record. It was made several years after Garrick left London University and the two of them had performed together, with other poets like Ted Hughes, Dannie Abse, Adrian Mitchell Laurie Leeand Alan Brownjohn, in a number of live events known as "Poetry and Jazz in Concert".
The 50th anniversary was marked by a concert in London last week. Garrick was to have directed the music but was rushed into hospital on the eve of the performance and couldn't take part.
