The great jazz trumpeter and host of I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue, Humphrey Lyttleton, died at 86. He will doubtless be missed by thousands of fans, with obituaries in The Times, The Telegraph, The Guardian, and many others, while Sandi Toksvig bids farewell in the Telegraph.

I leave you with the words of Humph himself: "As we journey through life, discarding baggage along the way, we should keep an iron grip, to the very end, on the capacity for silliness. It preserves the soul from desiccation."
