Robert Wyatt - Sea Song

There are a bunch of very iconoclastic British gentlemen among my musical heroes. They include Vano Morrison, John Martyn (R.I.P.), Ian Dury (R.I.P.) and one guy who is thankfully still with us, the brilliant Robert Wyatt. The quizzical, earnest music he's made sounds like no one else's. Here, from a BBC documentary, is one of his most beautiful pieces, "Sea Song". The trombonist beside him is Annie Whitehead.
