Reliably entertaining tradster rhythm guitarist-vocalist Marty Grosz is 90 today. His autobiography is published next month. Prepare for a few ripping yarns.

Son of German expressionist George Grosz, Marty was born in Berlin in 1930 and moved to the United States aged three. In a stellar and very long career Marty performed with Joe Pass, Herb Ellis, Charlie Byrd, Ruby Braff, Dick Hyman, Milt 'The Judge' Hinton and many more. He plays a Gibson L-5 archtop guitar and has a neat way with a between-song monologue. Grosz used to regularly play the London clubs in Peter Boizot's day.
