Death Of Sax Man Jimmy Honeycutt

Recommended Posts

Sax man, Jimmy Honeycutt, who played horn with The Bill Bush Combo in the 1960s has died following a short illness. Jimmy played the too-darn-catchy sax riff on the original recorded version of 'I'm Waiting' (Ronn 17) and supported Bill for many years in the clubs of Louisiana, before retiring and being replaced with James Stewart, who played with Eddy Giles in the 60s and remains with Bill's combo today.

He may also have played alongside Bill on The Fabulous Carousels - Would you love me - Town House (Jobette music) and Little Johnny Clarke - Black Coffee, which was also more or less The Bill Bush Combo, with Bobby Ship on vocals. Even a bit-part in the great story of Northern Soul deserves a mention in my view, so RIP Mr Honeycutt.
