Radiohead have paid tribute to Humphrey Littleton, the jazz musician and radio broadcaster who died last week aged 86.

The band previously recorded with Lyttelton on the Amnesiac album track “Life In a Glasshouse” and commended him for his inspiration.

The band said in a statement today “We were all sorry to hear of Humphrey Lyttleton’s death – he was an inspiring person to record with, and without his direction, we’d never have recorded/released ‘Life In A Glasshouse’. So go and find ‘Bad Penny Blues’, and celebrate his life with some hot jazz…”.
