RIP Herbert Hardesty


Herbert Hardesty may not be a name familiar to many of us in the UK but those of us with a leaning towards early rock 'n' roll and R'n'B will know the Fats Domino records such as I'm Walkin', When my Dreamboat Comes Home and countless others. If they have a tenor sax solo on them, and they usually did, it's a fair bet that the horn player was Herbert Hardesty who died on December 3 at the age of 91.

As well as Domino, Hardesty also played with Basie, Ellington, Ray Charles and many others. He spent time in the house band of one of the Vegas hotels backing artists such as Ella, Bennett, and Sinatra as well as recording with Hank Jones in New York.
A native of New Orleans, Hardesty also played trumpet and double bass.
Rest In Peace.
Obituary.
