£13.99

BEN LIGHT AND HIS LIGHTNING FINGERS - The Speed of Light - DOUBLE CD

CD / Product Number: JASCD643

Born in 1893 in New York City, Benjamin Bertram Leight had a long career at the keyboard under the performing name 'Ben Light.' In his early days, he went from working small cafes to headlining prominent vaudeville circuits. In the late 1930s, he recorded bawdy 'party' records for a low-budget jukebox label. In 1938, he toured with Cliff 'Ukulele Ike' Edwards. From the late 1940s to the mid 1950s, he made over 100 recordings for the Tempo, Capitol and X ... [MORE]

RICHARD HAYES - The Old Master Painter - DOUBLE CD

CD / Product Number: JASCD642

With some 17 chart success from 1949 to the mid fifties, Richard Hayes is one of the forgotten 'Pop' singers of the era, and has been completely over looked in the re-issue market....until NOW. Backed by the orchestras of Mitch Miller, Xavier Cugat and Raymond Scott to name a few, this 52 track set also includes duets with Kitty Kallen and Roberta Quinlan. The booklet contains informative notes drawn from a recent interview with Richard Hayes. [MORE]

Stan TRACEY - Little Clunk and Showcase
£13.99

Stan TRACEY - Little Clunk and Showcase

CD / Product Number: JASCD639

Stan Tracey is one of the finest jazz pianists and composers, not merely in his native Britain, or in Europe, but in the world. This is a welcome re-issue of two albums from the late 1950's. Showcase is a collection, as one may guess, of songs from musicals, many which have become standards in the jazz world. Here, Tracey is still finding his feet, as it were, on the piano, and his distinctive style hadn't fully formed. That isn't to say it's not superbly ... [MORE]

Bop-In' Britain Volume 2  - Gettin' The Message
£13.99

Bop-In' Britain Volume 2 - Gettin' The Message

CD / Product Number: JASCD638

Volume I of Bop-In' Britain showed, in general terms, the almost surreptitious way in which the new trend in American jazz permeated our consciousness the younger musicians, in the main, taking to it like the proverbial duck/water whilst the majority of the established bands men and/or swing musicians were far more cautious. This album, in continuing the story, shows that by the early 1950s, in spite of what was now little more than passive resistance ... [MORE]

BOP'IN' IN BRITAIN Volume 1 - The Learning Curve
£13.99

BOP'IN' IN BRITAIN Volume 1 - The Learning Curve

CD / Product Number: JASCD637

The new changes in jazz improvisation in America, coming under the somewhat unedifying nomenclature of bebop, permeated rather slowly into the British jazz scene during the mid 1940s, partly because most of the more jazz-influenced big bands of the time were wary of its potential and longevity. Equally though was the telling fact that in those days what we now take for granted of American jazz groups working in Britain, and vice-versa, was unheard of, due ... [MORE]

EDDIE FISHER  Every Song I Have is Yours- DOUBLE CD
£13.99

EDDIE FISHER Every Song I Have is Yours- DOUBLE CD

CD / Product Number: JASCD636

This compilation of Eddie Fisher's early tracks are a delight. A great package of fifty numbers and almost every one a winner. Many of his hits combine seamlessly with some lesser know ones to make a bumper bundle of great songs. The Hugo Winterhalter accompaniments are the icing on the cake. The title song and others such as 'Full Moon And Empty Arms' and the two duets with Perry Como are worth the purchase price alone. [MORE]

£14.99

Bunk and the New Orleans Revival 1924-1947 - Bunk Johnson - DOUBLE CD

CD / Product Number: JASCD635

William Geary 'Bunk' Johnson is an enigma, even in his name which should be Willie Gary Johnson according to some authorities. To many, he represents a link with the original jazz forms of the late 19th century while to others he is just an old man trying for his moment of glory. It is almost impossible to make an informed decision about his place in jazz without considering the evolution of jazz itself. Most informed commentators agree that jazz evolved ... [MORE]

THE BELL SISTERS -  'The Bermuda Girls' - The Original Hits and Lots More Fun
£13.99

THE BELL SISTERS - 'The Bermuda Girls' - The Original Hits and Lots More Fun

CD / Product Number: JASCD634

The Bell Sisters had big hits in the USA with the songs 'Bermuda' and 'Wheel Of Fortune' in 1952. Cynthia (then aged 16) and Kay (11) went on to appear on six occasions on Bing Crosby's and also Bob Hope's radio shows. The first 18 tracks, on Disc 2 include all the performances on Bing's show. The banter between the sisters an Bing is delightful. This set also feature the sister's many recordings as well as duets with other artist such as Phil Harris, ... [MORE]

FRANK NEWTON - The Story of A Forgotton Jazz Trumpeter - DOUBLE CD

FRANK NEWTON - The Story of A Forgotton Jazz Trumpeter - DOUBLE CD

CD / Product Number: JASCD633

'Frank Newton had a special sound… he always believed in giving the people something different,' the trombonist Dicky Wells once observed. Jazz historian Al Rose described Newton as '... an exciting, inventive trumpet player.' Despite such acclaim, the career of one of jazz trumpet's most individualistic, dynamic stylists has been consigned largely to the footnotes and margins of the music's history. During his relatively short life (he died aged 48 in ... [MORE]

TUBBY HAYES - Blue Hayes plus Live from Torrington 1969 - DOUBLE CD

CD / Product Number: JASCD632

Until recently it would have been possible to argue that the music of the late Tubby Hayes was in very real danger of falling permanently into the worst kind of limbo that can befall the output of any creative jazz artist that of being often talked about but seldom actually heard. Indeed, despite still being widely regarded as [MORE]

KENNY BAKER'S DOZEN Play Not Quite Two Dozen

CD / Product Number: JASCD631

Trumpeter Kenny Baker seems to have been around forever, certainly as far as the lives of most collectors reading these notes. His death not so long ago left a void which has been impossible to fill, both for collectors of Big Band music, Jazz lovers, and in particular those who enjoyed trumpet playing, not least for the musicians he regularly played with. Kenny was born at Withernsea, East Yorkshire. His mother was a violin player and gave piano lessons ... [MORE]

Charlie PARKER feat. Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, etc. The Quintets 1945 - 1951 / Collaborations - Bird Meets The Jazz Giants
The history and development of the small Jazz ensemble can be charted by the work of several key groups: Louis Armstrong's Hot Fives and Hot Sevens, the Kansas City Seven, Benny Goodman's Trios and Quartets, Lennie Tristano's Sextet, Miles Davis' various Quintets and Sextets from the late Fifties to the mid-Sixties, The Jazz ...

EDDIE 'LOCKJAW' DAVIS - Oh Gee! - Live In Manchester 1967 - DOUBLE CD
£13.99

EDDIE 'LOCKJAW' DAVIS - Oh Gee! - Live In Manchester 1967 - DOUBLE CD

CD / Product Number: JASCD629

Eddie Davis gained his nickname 'Lockjaw' from the title of one of his earliest recordings, although it could have been applied equally to the intense, immobile embouchure that clamped around his tenor saxophone mouthpiece whenever he blew. Lockjaw's sound, or rather sounds, were the product of the twin influences of Rhythm and Blues and an apprenticeship in the Swing bands of Cootie Williams (alongside Charlie Parker), Andy Kirk and others in the ...

BILL COLEMAN - A Smooth One - Live in Manchester May1967 - DOUBLE CD
£13.99

BILL COLEMAN - A Smooth One - Live in Manchester May1967 - DOUBLE CD

CD / Product Number: JASCD628

Trumpeter Coleman, strongly influenced by Louis Armstrong, belongs to that generation of jazz musicians (He was born in 1904) who set the standard for instrumental performances in the 1930's. But for the fact that he spent 80 of his career in Europe he would today be one of the icons of early jazz, comparable in stature to Coleman Hawkins, Red Allen or Benny Carter. This CD recorded in England in 1967, finds him in great form, not at all enfeebled by ... [MORE]

MODERN JAZZ AT THE ROYAL FESTIVAL HALL 1954 - Various Artists

CD / Product Number: JASCD627

It happened in 1954. A full-scale festival of jazz was held in one of London's Royal concert halls - and financially, as well as artistically, it was a resounding success! The National Jazz Federation, a non-profit making body dedicated to the furtherance of British jazz, was responsible for the event which took place at the Royal Festival Hall on October 30. An afternoon concert for the modernists and an evening show for traditional jazz lovers made up ... [MORE]

THE JAZZ COURIERS - The First and Last Words

CD / Product Number: JASCD626

Those who have JASMINE JASCD 617 'Tubby Hayes - The Swinging Giant, Vol. 2' will be familiar with the circumstances surrounding the formation of one of the legendary modern jazz groups of the late 1950s, The Jazz Couriers. Co-led by tenor saxophonists Tubby Hayes and Ronnie Scott, during its fairly short duration it has gone down in the annals of British modern jazz history as one of the most swinging, cohesive and urgent sounding groups of its type. ...

VICTOR FELDMAN In London Volume 2
£13.99

VICTOR FELDMAN In London Volume 2

CD / Product Number: JASCD625

This is the third re-release fo Victor Feldman's material from the Tempo label. There's some good material here, most notably the superb 'Blues In Two Moods', a stunning big band piece that vividly brings to mind the gloomy London of the mid 1950's, and Jimmy Deuchards excellent moody trumpet on the equally atmospheric 'It Ain't Necessarily So'. This is a worthwhile album, and it's good to see this material again. Also Available By Victor Feldman ... [MORE]

JIMMY DEUCHAR - Pal Jimmy
£13.99

JIMMY DEUCHAR - Pal Jimmy

CD / Product Number: JASCD624

One of the least happy features of the local jazz scene since April 1957 has been the continued absence of Jimmy Deuchar. Since Victor Feldman's departure for America, Jimmy has been probably the most mature and complete all-round musician in British jazz. Jimmy is a 'natural' born musician. As a trumpet player, he ranks among the best ever heard here. He can read almost anything on sight, and blow jazz on sequences he's never seen before. He has ... [MORE]

THE JAZZ FIVE - The Five of Us
£13.99

THE JAZZ FIVE - The Five of Us

CD / Product Number: JASCD623

This band has several characteristics in common with The Couriers. It has a two-saxophone front line - tenor and baritone as opposed to the two tenors of Ronnie Scott and Tubby Hayes. The personnel strikes a remarkably happy balance between experienced young 'veterans' and talented, enthusiastic youngsters. Like The Couriers, The Jazz Five has a definite and very personal sound. The two saxophones achieve a remarkably wide range. The band's book contains ... [MORE]

JIMMY DEUCHAR - Opus de Funk

CD / Product Number: JASCD621

The themes in this collection were all specially written and scored by Jimmy for a group of his long-time associates, all of whom had at one time or another been his colleagues in the Ronnie Scott and Tony Crombie line-ups. Hear Jimmy with both Derek Humble and Ken Wray on two earlier dates on JASMINE JASCD 616 'Jimmy Deuchar Showcase'. 'E' is in an easy-riding groove, moving along at a slowish tempo. The blueprint needs just the simplest explanation: ... [MORE]

VARIOUS ARTISTS - Music in the Making

CD / Product Number: JASCD619

Outside it was snowing temperatures were minus. Thirteen musicians, hunched against the icy blast, edged uneasily into the studio. Twelve of them shivered Johnny Hawksworth grinned. Basses like cold weather. He tuned up. Dill Jones sidled into the piano stool. Someone hawked round some scores. Allan Ganley swung in on brushes. Jimmy Deuchar ran through a phrase with Don Rendell, and the session was under way. That's how it went all day. Nothing formal ... [MORE]
