Born on 14.02.1939 in Bridlington, U.K.
Died on 12.04.1995 in London.
Although not the most ubiquitous British trombone player, Chris Pyne was certainly one of the best. Frank Sinatra insisted that he played trombone on all the singer's European tours between 1970 and 1983 and Pyne became the trombonist most in demand in the London studios.
He has accompanied among others Ella Fitzgerald, Tony Bennett, Dizzy Gillespie and Sarah Vaughan.
