R.I.P. Joe Mudele

I've just learned via Londonjazznews of the death of bassist Joe Mudele aged 93. One of the early British bebop bass players - he spelt his name Muddel back then - a founder member of the Club XI and the Dankworth 7 he also played in the big bands of Ambrose, Jack Nathan, Paul Adam, Kenny Baker's Dozen and small groups led by Norman Burns and Tommy Whittle.
I recall Eric Delaney once saying to me that his ambition was to outlive Joe Mudele! Well Eric didn't manage it and now they're both up in that heavenly rhythm section.
Joe Mudele died on March 7.
Sadly missed.
Lance
PS:  Anyone know why and when he changed his name from Muddel to Mudele?
