Henry Berthold "Spike" Robinson (January 16, 1930 in Kenosha, Wisconsin - October 29, 2001 in Writtle, England) was a tenor saxophonist. He began playing at age twelve, making recordings with famous jazz and bop musicians on several labels including Discovery, Hep and Concord.
In Town is one of several records he has made for the Scottish company, Hep. Computer engineer +cum+ tenor sax man, Robinson displays agility and virtuosity with his alto-like tenor sax, as he runs through this album of well-known standards with facility and ease. He's joined on four of the cuts by vocalist Elaine Delmar. She and pianist Brian Lemon together weave a very enjoyable version of Duke Ellington's "In a Sentimental Mood. Robinson has inherited the style and mannerisms of the great romantic tenors, like Zoot Sims and Stan Getz.
