Jamaican baritone, tenor saxophonist and clarinetist.  He started on clarinet and worked in during the forties in Jamaica before leaving for Bermuda and on Canadian cruise ships before taking up saxophone.

As a key soloist in the society band of the pianist Milton McPherson he became the leading tenor saxophonist of his generation in Jamaica.

ln 1945 he moved to England to join Jiver Hutchinson, with whom he remained for five years and made tours of India and Europe. He then worked in Cambridge with the trumpeter Ken Turner. With Cab Kaye he toured Belgium and Holland (1950-51),after which he rejoined Hutchinson to tour Sweden and worked with Joe Harriott. A generous, expansive soloist in the style of Ben Webster, Tyndale developed a reputation for reliability as a section player and worked with Ted Heath, Harry Gold, and the Squadronaires. He recorded with Caribbean singers and appeared extensively at nightclubs, in particular with Joe Appleton's band and for a period as a leader at the Sunset, a rendezvous popular with London's black population. Tyndale attained national prominence when he changed to baritone saxophone on joining John Dankworth’s orchestra in 1960; he then spent several years with semi-professional groups.

This BBC Radio programme was recorded in 1960 by Jazz singer Bobby Breen. He was the resident singer for the Band at that time. The original recording was made using a Grundig reel to reel tape recorder and microphone in front of a radio loudspeaker. This was then later copied onto a Philips portable compact cassette recorder. 56 years later this poor quality recording was digitized for modern consumption.
