JOHN RIPPER and FRIENDS - 80 Not Out

CD / Product Number: PKCD386

ohn Ripper, who as the CD title implies, is 80 years of age, has been a professional musician, playing clarinet and saxes, for most of his adult life. He worked in dance bands since the early '60s and on his retirement to Malvern he met many local jazz musicians and then, for a time, played with Paul Munnery's Harlem Jazz Orchestra. He now plays with the Malvern Big Band and sits in with local bands when he can. This CD, recorded in November 2013, ... [MORE]

The Rascals Of Rhythm - Clarinet Marmalade and other Treats

CD / Product Number: PKCD385

If like me you are a fan of the music from the golden age of American songwriting - mostly around the time of the great depression in the 1930s - then you absolutely must have this CD! I defy anyone to listen to Dave Moorwood's marvellous band without a smile on their face this is truly happy jazz with some wonderful tunes. The line-up is Mike Wills and Tony Blincowe reeds (too many to list here), Perry Lock or Geoff Barwell piano (they shared the ... [MORE]

Sunset Cafe Stompers - Magic is the Moonlight

CD / Product Number: PKCD384

It's many years (16 I think) since I last recorded this fine band and I'm pleased to say their distinctive brand of New Orleans-style jazz has hardly changed. This CD was recorded at a live club session in Somerset on November 29th 2013. The Band line-up is Steve Graham trumpet, Mike Betts clarinet and tenor sax, Pete Middleton trombone, Mike Denham piano, Eddie Edwards banjo, Pete Ward double bass and Pete Winterhart drums. [MORE]

Brian Carrick's Algiers Stompers- We'll Meet Again

CD / Product Number: PKCD383

It's been four years since I recorded Brian's band - far too long! This was recorded (not a live session) in the village hall at Shackerstone, near where I live, in November 2013. It's an old building with ideal acoustics for this sort of music I might use it again one day. The band were all on great form - the line-up is:- Peter Wright trumpet, Brian Carrick clarinet and tenor sax, Chas Hudson trombone, Gabriele Gad piano, Bob Rowbotham banjo, Bill Cole ... [MORE]

CD / Product Number: PKCD382

Recorded at Burton-on-Trent Jazz Club in April 2013 this is the first CD for P.E.K. by Kevin's supremely talented band.

A new CD from John Maddocks' superb band is always welcome and this one (their 12th on the P.E.K. Sound label) is no exception.

A Breeze From New Orleans - Smiles

CD / Product Number: PKCD380

Sarah Thatcher had planned to launch her new band at the 2012 Keswick Jazz Festival but, following the tragic death of her husband Norman in April 2012, that was not to be. At the 2013 Festival the band appeared in its present form and this recording comes from one of their sessions. The line-up, all hugely experienced New Orleans-style musicians, is Steve Graham trumpet Liz Bacon clarinet Tom Whittingham trombone Gabriele Gad piano Sarah Thatcher banjo ... [MORE]

£12.99

Chris Pierce's Freenchmen Street Jazz Band - Volume Two

CD / Product Number: PKCD379

Since the release of 'Volume One' (PKCD-365) in December 2011 the band has undergone some personnel changes but continues Chris's declared policy of playing high quality traditional jazz which is not hidebound by any particular musical style - no pigeon-holing here! This CD was recorded (not a live session) at Beoley Village Hall in Worcestershire in May 2013. The line-up is Tony Pipkin trumpet Chris Pearce reeds Richard Leach trombone Phil Probert banjo ...

Martin Bennett's Old Green River Jazz Band - Be Easy With My Baby

CD / Product Number: PKCD378

Here is the latest CD by Martin Bennett's excellent and distinctive New Orleans-style band. It was recorded live at Burton-on-Trent Jazz Club in Feb. 2013. In these recessionary times it's good to see bands and jazz clubs flourishing, and both Martin's band and Burton Jazz Club are doing just that. The band travel far and wide throughout UK and Europe playing to enthusiastic audiences wherever they go. The line-up (slightly changed from their last CD) is ... [MORE]

Hallam-Roberts Jazz 5 - The Sunny Side of the Street

CD / Product Number: PKCD377

We are so fortunate in Britain to have a wealth of supremely talented young jazz musicians. Now I know 'young' is a subjective word but, by any standards, three of the five musicians on this CD are young - and so talented! Amy Roberts is undoubtedly one of Britain's greatest rising stars in the jazz world. In only a few years she has gone from being a very young aspiring sax player who would sit in with bands from time to time, to being well established ... [MORE]

Maddocks-Huxley Reeds United - REPLAY

CD / Product Number: PKCD376

The footballing theme, which started with the band's first CD in 2002 (PKCD-226), continues with their latest recording which took place in the jazz marquee at the 2012 Keswick Festival. I was very uneasy about recording in a marquee the possibilities for disruption by stormy weather, low flying aircraft etc were a real worry. But opportunities to record this band are very few and far between so I couldn't turn this one down. In the event there were no ... [MORE]

£12.99

The Golden Eagle Jazz Band - We'll Meet Again

CD / Product Number: PKCD375

It's been three years since I released the first CD by this excellent New Orleans-style band. In those three years the band has progressed in leaps and bounds helped in no small measure by the fact that they have maintained an unchanged personnel. Their relaxed approach should be a model for many bands who equate excitement with fast and furious! There are no break-neck tempos here, but plenty of exuberance and feeling, and the choice of tunes is spot-on ... [MORE]

Phil Probert's JazzMates - We Do Music

CD / Product Number: PKCD374

Now here is something very different from most of my catalogue! When Phil says 'We do music' that's exactly what he means. Phil plays mostly with jazz bands but the other musicians on this CD come from various backgrounds - folk, rock, and jazz. Phil leads the band on electric guitar and is accompanied by Vo Fletcher - folk singer, songwriter and one of the Midlands finest acoustic guitarists Dayne Cranenburg bass guitarist of amazing technique and ...

The WirrOrleans Jazz Band - Live at Keswick

CD / Product Number: PKCD373

Formed back in 1978 this accomplished band is now well known far beyond its original home territory of the Wirral/Merseyside area. A combination of fine musicianship and a wide-ranging repertoire - Buddy Bolden, Jelly Roll Morton, Sydney Bechet to Duke Ellington - make them a popular choice for jazz clubs and festivals. This CD was recorded at the 2012 Keswick Festival. The band line-up is a happy combination of experience and youth, their most recent ... [MORE]

Laurie Chescoe's Reunion Band - Let A Smile Be Your Umbrella

Laurie Chescoe's Reunion Band - Let A Smile Be Your Umbrella

CD / Product Number: PKCD372

I was delighted when Laurie Chescoe asked me to record his Reunion Band at the Keswick Festival in May and then again at Risley Park in July. The band was formed only a couple of years ago but still has five original members of Laurie Chescoe's Good Time Jazz which played so successfully during the 1990s and broke up in 2002 due to the untimely deaths of two key members, Ian Hunter-Randall and Dave Jones. The band is led by Laurie Chescoe (drums) whose ... [MORE]

The Forest New Orleans Jazz Band - Lakin' it in the Lakes

CD / Product Number: PKCD371

I always enjoy The Forest N.O.J.B. and this session at the 2011 Keswick Jazz Festival was no exception. The band has played regularly since its formation in 1984 but has rarely ventured far from its base in Lancashire. Therefore many of you won't have had the pleasure of hearing them live. The line-up on this CD is Arthur Stead trumpet, John Brunton clarinet tenor sax, Jack Moore trombone, Tom Culbert piano, Ron Payton banjo, Peter Vickers double bass and ... [MORE]

Norman Thatcher and John Scantlebury with The Wessex New Orleans Jazz Band -

CD / Product Number: PKCD370

This CD was recorded live in November 2011 and was almost ready for release when we heard the awful news that Norman had died suddenly on April 17th from a heart attack while on holiday with Sarah. Eleanor and I first saw Norman at the very first Bude Jazz Festival in 1988 and then in September '88 we saw his band for the first time. Subsequently we would drive regularly to see Norman's band at Aston Cross near Tewkesbury. He and Chris Blount played ... [MORE]

£12.99

Brian Carrick's Algiers Stompers - Club Session - Send Me Some Lovin'

CD / Product Number: PKCD369

For some unaccountable reason this CD, recorded over two years ago was delayed - and delayed - in production. Anyway I trust you'll think, as I do, that it was worth the wait, especially as it's about four years since the last CD by the band. This CD was recorded at Little Witley Jazz Club in February 2010 a fantastic club, always packed and with a superb atmosphere which comes across on the recording. Since I last recorded the Algiers Stompers, Bob ... [MORE]

MILLENIUM EAGLE JAZZ BAND - Travelling Blues

CD / Product Number: PKCD368

Here is the band's fourth CD on P.E.K. Sound. It was recorded in November 2011 at a live session at Sutton Coldfield Jazz Club. It nearly didn't happen because, although it's a fairly local venue for me, the Friday evening traffic was so heavy that I had to queue for nearly an hour on the slip road coming off the M42. I hate having to rush but I was ready in time, just! It was all well worth it - the band, having been on tour for a few days, were on great ... [MORE]

I'M WITH YOU WHERE YOU ARE - Steve Graham's New Orleans Jazz Band
£12.99

I'M WITH YOU WHERE YOU ARE - Steve Graham's New Orleans Jazz Band

CD / Product Number: PKCD367

Steve Graham is a hugely talented and very versatile trumpeter who appears in my catalogue on several CDs with various bands. This is the first CD by his recently formed New Orleans Band, recorded live at the 2011 Keswick Jazz Festival, and playing in the looser style we all associate with New Orleans-style jazz. What sets this band apart from many N.O.-style bands is their repertoire. Very few bands since Bunk Johnson's and, later, Ken Colyer's have ... [MORE]

The Rae Brothers New Orleans Jazz Band - True

The Rae Brothers New Orleans Jazz Band - True

CD / Product Number: PKCD366

This is the band's tenth CD - quite a milestone! Incidentally all the other nine are currently available. Since the band's first recording in 1997 there have been some personnel changes not many, but their relaxed and distinctive sound has hardly changed at all and the spirit of the band is as solid as ever. Now as then the emphasis is on relaxed ensemble jazz with few solos. The biggest change to occur to the band came with the sad death of Clem Avery. ... [MORE]

Chris Pearce's Frenchmen Street Jazz Band - Volume One

Chris Pearce's Frenchmen Street Jazz Band - Volume One

CD / Product Number: PKCD365

The band was formed about ten years ago, following a visit by Chris and his Brother-in-law to New Orleans in 2001, but thereafter only performed on an occasional basis. Last year, following the decision by the Antique Six Jazzband to stop playing after 2011, Chris established his 'new' band in its present form with Tony Davis trumpet, Chris on clarinet and saxes, Richard Leach trombone, Ian Parry banjo guitar, John Vickers double bass and Graham Smith ...

Mellow Avstreih with Paul Munnery's Swing Street - A Way of my Own
£12.99

Mellow Avstreih with Paul Munnery's Swing Street - A Way of my Own

CD / Product Number: PKCD364

Mellow Avstreih is an amazing singer. Since I first recorded her in 2001 she has developed her own truly unique style which sets her apart from other singers. She is without doubt one of the finest young singers on the jazz scene today. Mellow sings slow ballads with feeling and emotion second to none, and her timing and phrasing are at times electrifying. Yet she can deliver a raunchy blues as powerfully as any of today's (or yesterday's) singers. Here, ... [MORE]

£12.99

Kevin Grenfel and Richard Leach - Slide By Slide - Pro Bono

CD / Product Number: PKCD363

Since the band's formation in 2009 they have been in constant demand which disproves the theory that any band which isn't a middle-of-the-road trad band will find success difficult to achieve. Mind you with musical talent such as we have here it would be surprising and very sad if they did not succeed. Both Kevin Grenfell and Richard Leach are outstanding trombonists and the astonishing rapport which exists between them provides that extra thrill for ... [MORE]

George Huxley's All Star Jazz Band with Caz Shennington - AT THE JAZZ BAND BALL

George Huxley's All Star Jazz Band with Caz Shennington - AT THE JAZZ BAND BALL

CD / Product Number: PKCD362

It's almost twenty years since I recorded George Huxley's superb band, and this is the first CD I have made for them it was recorded under studio conditions in May 2011. This is undoubtedly one of Britain's finest traditional jazz bands - seven top class musicians most of whom have been together for decades George's association with Gordon Whitworth goes back over forty years. The line-up is Gordon Whitworth trumpet George Huxley clarinet, soprano alto ... [MORE]
