MARTIN BENNETT'S OLD GREEN RIVER BAND "One For My Baby"

PKCD-241

I think it's one of the most exciting bands I've heard in ages; their music could be described as 'New Orleans meets R'n'B'. It is quite different from any of the 'run-of-the-mill' New Orleans-style bands; and I think few bands come closer to the true spirit of New Orleans in their music. This CD was recorded live at a thrilling session near Macclesfield in December 2003. The line-up (slightly changed since their last CD) is Stan Williams tpt, Tony Denton bar sax, Eric Brierley tb, Martin Bennett pno, Louis Lince bjo, Jim Swinnerton bs, Pete Cotterill dms and the tunes are:- Indiana, You Are My Sunshine, Tin Roof Blues, All Of Me, The Tennessee Waltz, Algiers Strut, Wabash Blues, Baby Face, Saint James' Infirmary, Some Of These Days, See See Rider, Bye And Bye.

RICHARD LEACH'S 7 STARS OF JAZZ "Bordering On The Welsh"

PKCD-243

One of the more neglected areas of jazz today is the Chicago/Dixieland style of music played so brilliantly in the 1950s to 1970s by the legendary Alex Welsh Band. In 2003 Richard Leach assembled a band to play just this style of jazz - the other band members are John Burnett trumpet, Rod Chambers reeds, Mike Graver piano, Brian Mellor guitar, Len Thwaites bass and Brian Price drums - truly a Midlands all-star line-up. This CD was recorded live just before Christmas 2003 and the tunes are:- S'wonderful, Sweeping The Blues Away, That's A Plenty, Wrap Your Troubles In Dreams, Willow Weep For Me, I've Got A Feeling I'm Falling, Out Of Nowhere, I Want A Little Girl, As Long As I Live, Sweet Lorraine, Once In A While, Georgia On My Mind, Oh Baby.

PHIL WALL'S JAZZ CARDINALS "Every Tub"

PKCD-244

Hearing and recording this band at last year's Bude Festival was, for me, one of the highlights of the Festival. Looking at the line-up from the programme I was, initially, a bit suspicious, having never heard a band with banjo and guitar. But the session was a delight, and so, I think, is their first CD. The line-up is Norman Thatcher cornet; Phil Wall clarinet & alto sax; Rob Gribble baritone and tenor saxes, trombone, vocals; Sam Sims guitar, mandolin; Sarah Thatcher banjo, guitar; Vic Partridge double bass; Tony Quinn percussion. The tunes are:- Gatemouth, Old Fashioned Love, Stock Yards Strut, Blue Hawaii, The Owls Hoot, After You've Gone, Give Me Your Telephone Number, The Tennessee Waltz, Perdido St Blues, Please Don't Talk About Me When I'm Gone, Every Tub, Goober Dance, Forty And Tight, Forevermore, Papa Dip, Riverside Blues, Piggly Wiggly.

THE RAE BROTHERS NEW ORLEANS JAZZ BAND "In The Good Old Summer Time"

PKCD-246

At the 2003 Bude Jazz Festival, where this, the band's seventh, CD was recorded, they were rejoined by Ian Brown on cornet. Ian played with the band from 1995 to 1998 and was on their first CD (PKCD-097). Fans of the band will know what to expect - relaxed ensemble New Orleans-style music played with great sympathy and understanding. As Marcel Joly says in the sleeve-note, "They give a new dimension to the idea that less can be more. Their playing is simple relaxed and heartfelt." The line-up is Ian Brown cornet; Mac Rae clarinet; Jim Blenkin trombone; Dave Rae banjo; John Robinson double bass; Kenny Milne drums, and the tunes are:- We'll Stroll The Lanes Together, You Belong To Me, The Miner's Dream Of Home, Postman's Lament, If Those Lips Could Only Speak, In The Good Old Summer Time, Midnight Hour Blues, Gypsy Love Song, All I Do Is Dream Of You, What A Friend We Have In Jesus, The Second Line, South, You Broke Your Promise, Sweetheart Of All My Dreams, Running Wild, Home Sweet Home.

THE JOHN MADDOCKS TRIO "Collecting Glasses"

PKCD-248

The John Maddocks Trio have appeared at the Bude Festival for many years, and, as has often happened in the past, on this session at the 2003 Festival, they were four in number (!) - John Maddocks clarinet, alto sax; Peter Tamplin piano; Mike Cox banjo; Chris Marchant drums. John's Down Home Jazzers (PKCD-227) grew out of his ever expanding Trio about nine or ten years ago. With John you might not know how many you'll get, but you can always be sure of some thrilling jazz. The tunes are:- Buddy's Habit, Potato Head Blues, The Old Rugged Cross, Move The Body Over, High Society, Midnight Hour Blues, Kansas City Stomps, Snake Rag, Love Me Tender, Good Morning Blues, Perdido St Blues, Doctor Jazz. For an explanation of the CD title you'll have to buy it and read the sleeve-notes. (65 mins)

THE WABASH JAZZMEN "On A Coconut Island"

PKCD-250

This is the eighth recording by Mark Challinor's outstanding five-piece band - five of the other seven are still available on CD - and, like their last CD, it was recorded (in April 2004) under studio conditions. The line-up is unchanged - Ged Hone cornet; Mike Hayler clarinet, tenor sax; Mike Pembroke trombone; Mark Challinor banjo; Howard Worthington double bass. The two-piece drummer-less rhythm section is one of the best anywhere, and the excitement generated by the supremely able front-line is undoubtedly a major factor in the band's popularity. The tunes are:- The Old Spinning Wheel In The Parlour, Smile Darn Ya Smile, You've Gotta See Mama Every Night, On A Coconut Island, Way Down Upon The Swanee River, Wabash Blues, Bluebells Goodbye, St Louis Blues, Wait Till The Sun Shines Nellie, Creole Song, Blue Turning Grey Over You, Said I Wasn't Gonna Tell Nobody, Africa Blues, One Sweet Letter From You, Louisian I Ay.
