Born 1936 in Glasgow, Bobby worked with Stan Tracey's Quartet during the 1960s, playing on the classic album "Under Milk Wood". In a poll by Jazz UK magazine, readers chose this record as their all-time favourite British jazz album. Bobby was absent from the jazz scene for a number of years, until in 1976 he formed a quartet and with Don Weller, a quintet. He was then able to perform regularly and start recording again. Bobby Wellins is and always has been an original with his own distinctive sound. "Bobby Wellins has a tenor sax tone so celebrated that it has become the one aspect of his playing everbody mentions. But that gorgeous, smoky sound is part of a complete style that involves articulation, phrasing and a delightfully wayward approach to time" - The Observer.
