British Trumpeter John Chilton Writes Autobiography

Northway Publications will release Hot Jazz, Warm Feet, the autobiography from British jazz trumpeter John Chilton, in April 2007. For any Londoners out there, Foyles Bookshop (at Charing Cross Road, London WC2) will hold a free book launch on April 23 at 6 p.m. Chilton will perform along with Wally Fawkes and George Melly.

The trio has performed around the world since 1974 as the Feetwarmers, even enjoying a stint in the ’80s with BBC on their own television show Good Time George. Before playing with the Feetwarmers, Chilton led the backing band Swing Kings and was a part of Bruce Turner’s Jump Band.
