Alan Clare - Castilla tab

Castilla - Alan Clare (1921-1993)

This is a mesmerizing piece by a composer I am unfamiliar
with, Alan Clare. I have not been able to find anything
anywhere on this person, and certainly not any tablature.

[some info on Alan Clare is appended]

Please enjoy.

Note the tuning: D-A-D-G-B-E    Key/Legend below the tab.

Born in London on 31st May 1921. A self-taught pianist, Alan Clare became a professional musician at the age of 15 and during the next few years became a familiar figure on the London jazz scene. He played with Carlo Krahmer, Sid Phillips and others in the early '40s before military service intervened. Wounded soon after D-Day, he returned to civilian life, playing in the comedy band led by Sid Milward and also began a long sporadic association with Stйphane Grappelli. From the '50s onwards, Clare was busy playing jazz in small groups, some of which he led, mostly in nightclubs but also appearing occasionally on television. An exceptionally gifted pianist with a light, subtle touch, he had a seemingly endless knowledge of tunes and chord progressions. Allied to a gift for accompaniment and the ability to play with unflagging swing, Clare was an outstanding figure of British jazz. It was his involvement in the jazz scene that lead to his teaming up with Spike Milligan (himself an accomplished jazz trumpeter). Alan appeared in both Spike's series 'Q' and 'There's A Lot Of It About', and not just in musical sketches. He died on 29th November 1993." http://www.pf757.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/rd/BiogsSupp.html "His chosen milieu, however, and the relatively few recordings he made, often deleted with indecent haste, conspired to keep his gleaming talent from the widespread audience he so richly deserved." http://www.centrohd.com/biogra/c1/alan_clare_b.htm "Alan Clare, whose real name was Alan Jaycock, also wrote songs (Mirage was perhaps the most popular). Several of Clare's light miniatures (John o' Groats, Eternal Waltz, Screwball, Toujours Paris and Descansado) were published for piano but some at least were for orchestra." http://www.musicweb.uk.net/garlands/148.htm
