    Hi Jack,

    Johnny Hawksworth's instrument is the double bass (he famously played in the Ted Heath band during the 50s & 60s), although he probably also plays electric bass.

    As he's an arranger/composer, I'd imagine he knows his way around a piano pretty well, too.

    He lives in Australia now and still writes library music.

        Thank you very much

        I love him soooooooooo much, his work anyways

        I just scored an IM 21 Library: "Comedy and Big Beat" LP,
        dead mint at an on-line store in France for 10 DOLLARS !

        And just traded it (I have a copy in my collection or else I would NEVER get rid of it) with a Sonimage Library psych monster called TRAFIC POP for 5 Creasound and Neuilly Libraries ! I think 3 Cecil Leuter electronic and a couple of Nino Nardini electronic Lib's

        Some of you guys are THE BEST.

        THANKS AGAIN Gwen and van Otterloo

                And from the same website, another article with an interesting quote from Johnny/Denis about the sort of stuff he's doing these days!

                      I'll see if I can find out.

                      By the way, something I forgot to mention was that he also writes under the name of Paul Kass. He's used this name on Chappell, de Wolfe and Parry tracks.

                        Thats weird but it does explain why so many of the good Parry tracks are by P. Kass! Quite often though there will be a Hawksworth and a Kass composition on the same library - why bother to use different names??

                              Aha!! So he changed his name in order to gain access to the elite world of the orchestral/library/jazz music Johnnys!

                              Think about it:

                              Harris, Gregory, Pearson, Scott, Keating, Dankworth..

                              In the days of British big band funk, undeniably the Johnnys ruled. Any vulture, any man can see how Denis would be tempted, and did ultimately become one of the great library Johnnys.
                              Let him have the lot for £2.00 - we were only going to throw 'em out anyway...
