John Maddocks Jazzmen - No Second Takes

CD / Product Number: PKCD361

This CD is the band's first live club recording since PKCD-292 (Bude 2005). It was originally planned for this to be studio recording like their previous three CDs but there were problems fixing a recording date so we went live at the band's regular Sunday residency in Ringwood, Hants. The session took place in June 2011 on one of the hottest days of the year. I was looking at one of the band's early CDs recently and it struck me that despite having ... [MORE]

Red Wing Band with Brian Carrick - Having A Good Time

CD / Product Number: PKCD360

Here is the second CD on P.E.K. by this excellent and distinctive N.O.-style band. It was recorded at Little Witley Jazz Club in October 2010 during the band's hectic 1200 mile tour of England. There have been some personnel changes since their last CD (PKCD-327) but the band sound is unchanged with a front line of trombone and two reeds. The two reeds work together wonderfully well and their two-clarinet rendition of St Philip Street Breakdown is simply ... [MORE]

Tony Jack with Christine and The Stackyard Stompers - Running Wild

CD / Product Number: PKCD359

Here is something very different from my usual output of jazz CDs. At the 1995 Bude Jazz Festival I recorded The Stackyard Stompers but for reasons which are long forgotten the tracks were never released. Then a few months ago John Pickett (trumpet player with the band) contacted me to discuss releasing a CD from that session as a tribute to Tony Jack (clarinet and saxes), and here it is. Tony, who died in 2006, was arguably one of the greatest unsung ... [MORE]

Down By The Riverside - Storyville Allstars

CD / Product Number: PKCD358

Of all the venues where I have recorded jazz bands, and there've been quite a few, one of the most scenic and attractive is Discovery Point in Dundee. The modern first floor concert room overlooks the dock where Captain Scott's ship Discovery is moored, and floodlit at night - very lovely. It's also the furthest North I've ever recorded. Last October Ann and I drove to Dundee to record the Storyville Allstars' annual concert. All was going well until ... [MORE]

The Girl I Knew - Sheila Fawkes and The Guys

The Girl I Knew - Sheila Fawkes and The Guys

CD / Product Number: PKCD357

There is a vast, almost untapped, stock of wonderful popular songs most of them written in the 1920s and '30s. To their credit there are today jazz musicians who make a deliberate and conscious effort to unearth some of these songs and bring them back to life. Names which come to mind are Dave Moorwood, Chas Hudson (Algiers Stompers), Arthur Stead (Forest N.O.J.B.) and of course Sheila Fawkes. On this, Sheila's second CD she is joined by the same group of ... [MORE]

The The Amy Roberts Quintet - Who's Sorry Now?
£12.99

The The Amy Roberts Quintet - Who's Sorry Now?

CD / Product Number: PKCD356

At the 2010 Keswick Jazz Festival Amy's band played to a packed house at the Skiddaw Hotel. How refreshing it is to see (and for me to record) a band comprised entirely of young musicians - the oldest is in his mid-thirties. The line-up is Amy Roberts alto sax and clarinet, Andy Hillier trombone, Tom Kincaid piano, Jim Swinnerton double bass and Stuart Smith drums. Amy's musical career goes from strength to strength. Still in her early twenties she topped ... [MORE]

Martin Bennett's Old Green River Band - The Howden Concert
£12.99

Martin Bennett's Old Green River Band - The Howden Concert

CD / Product Number: PKCD355

As the title suggests this CD of Martin's great band comes from a live session, recorded in November 2010 (just as the weather started to turn nasty) at The Shire Hall, Howden near Goole. Since their last recording Chez Chesterman has joined the band on cornet and Roscoe Birchmore on double bass. Also they are now a six-piece band with no banjo. Despite these changes the band's distinctive sound is as strong as ever. Their vibrant earthy New Orleans style ... [MORE]

Dave Moorwood's Big Bear Stompers - The Phoenix
£12.99

Dave Moorwood's Big Bear Stompers - The Phoenix

CD / Product Number: PKCD354

It's three years since this wonderful Frisco-style band made a recording - far too long I think! For me one of the attractions of this band is their great joie de vivre or to put it another way their great sense of enjoyment in all they do, which comes through strongly in their music. This CD was recorded live at the 2010 Keswick Jazz Festival in May 2010, so the band had the benefit of a large and enthusiastic festival audience. The line-up is slightly ... [MORE]

The Lez Bull Jazz Band - Hustlin' and Bustlin'
£12.99

The Lez Bull Jazz Band - Hustlin' and Bustlin'

CD / Product Number: PKCD353

Remarkably this is the band's first CD. It was recorded live at Carlisle Jazz Club in August 2010. Formed five years ago by Lez Bull, after an enforced two year lay-off, the band plays their distinctive style of Traditional Jazz in the North-west of the country. I think it's time they ventured further afield there's a huge audience out there waiting to enjoy their music. Not surprisingly, given the line-up - Lez Bull trumpet Dave Lee clarinet, soprano and ... [MORE]

Wessex New Orleans Jazz Band - Live at Coast View

CD / Product Number: PKCD352

Another fairly new band recorded for the first time at the highly successful Coast View Holiday Park week-long jazz break. April 2010. Featuring Keith Box clarinet, Norman Thatcher trombone and tenor sax, Dave Soby piano, Sarah Thatcher banjo and guitar, Peter Berry double bass and Pete Winterhart drums. [MORE]

The Rae Brothers New Orleans Festival Band - Memories

CD / Product Number: PKCD351

This is the first recording of the Rae Brothers' 'Other Band' featuring Steve Graham on trumpet and Ian Wynne on piano with Mac Rae on clarinet, Jim Blenkin trombone, Dave Rae banjo, John Robinson double bass and Kenny Milne drums. It was recorded 'live' in June 2010. [MORE]

KESWICK FESTIVAL 2009 - Lucien Barbarin with The Dave Donohoe Band

CD / Product Number: PKCD350

This recording very nearly didn't happen. At Keswick 2009 I was booked to record three bands John Shillito's Select Six, Hot Banana (not released), and New Orleans Wiggle. At the last minute I had a message to say that Dave Donohoe would like me to record this session. There followed some fairly frantic efforts to contact Lucien Barbarin to get his agreement to be recorded. It was all sorted out with not much time to spare and here is the result. At first ...

£12.99

THIS 'N' THAT - The John Maddocks Band

CD / Product Number: PKCD349

This is something of a milestone - it is the tenth CD by the band for P.E.K. Sound. The first, 'For Real' (PKCD-125) was recorded back in 1998. This latest recording was, like several previous CDs by the band, made at The Concorde Club near Southampton - not a live session. The personnel, almost unchanged from the last CD (PKCD-329) is Peter Wilkinson trumpet John Maddocks clarinet tenor sax Tony Farr trombone Chris Satterly piano Dave Broomfield banjo ... [MORE]

BLACK BOTTOM STOMP - Millenium Eagle Jazz Band
£12.99

BLACK BOTTOM STOMP - Millenium Eagle Jazz Band

CD / Product Number: PKCD348

This is the band's third CD for P.E.K. It was recorded live early this year on a snowy February evening at Nottingham Rhythm Club. It was touch and go whether I'd get there in time - not due to the snow but because of horrendously heavy traffic on the M1. I put my trust in Blodwyn (my sat-nav) and arrived in reasonably good time. Of course the bad weather had kept some people at home and so the audience was smaller than usual. Nevertheless the end result ... [MORE]

WINTER SUNSHINE - The International Band

WINTER SUNSHINE - The International Band

CD / Product Number: PKCD347

This one is a must for lovers of New Orleans-style jazz. Derek Winters assembled this marvellous band for the Bude Festival in 2008. He is well known in Europe where he plays with many of the best N.O.-style bands and he brought together musicians from Sweden, Denmark, Holland and England to play at the Festival and the result is truly outstanding. The line-up is:- Derek Winters trumpet Sverker Nyström clarinet Hans Zakrisson trombone Göran Magnusson ... [MORE]

Richard Leach's Seven Stars Of Jazz - Serenade in Blue - Double CD

CD / Product Number: PKCD346

In October 2009 I recorded a truly amazing session by Richard's band at Stourbridge RFC Jazz Club. It was so good that Richard and I had no hesitation in agreeing that every single track should be released. So here on two CDs is the complete session, in the order in which it was played. It's strange, having been in this business for nearly tewnty years, I have released two double albums in the space of just six months The band personnel, unchanged from ... [MORE]

NEW ORLEANS WIGGLE - Over the Waaves
£12.99

NEW ORLEANS WIGGLE - Over the Waaves

CD / Product Number: PKCD345

Here is the first CD by this excellent New Orleans-style band, based in West Yorkshire and formed about five years ago by members of the late Dennis Browne's Creole Band. They have recently been joined by Carolyn Topsy Hilton, a young singer with an amazing voice. As you probably know I believe there are too many lady singers on the jazz scene who shouldn't! Carolyn is one who definitely should - she's outstanding she sings on five of the twelve tracks. ... [MORE]

THE GOLDEN EAGLE JAZZ BAND - June Night
£12.99

THE GOLDEN EAGLE JAZZ BAND - June Night

CD / Product Number: PKCD344

The band, based in Surrey and led by banjo player Kevin Scott, was formed about eighteen months ago and is rapidly establishing a reputation for its relaxed ensemble style of New Orleans music. This, their first CD, was recorded live at one of their two residencies in May 2009. The band and the musicians are not especially well-known outside the south of England but they each have many years' experience playing Traditional and New Orleans jazz. The ... [MORE]

THE ANTIQUE SIX JAZZ BAND - Job Lot

CD / Product Number: PKCD343

The Antique Six Jazzband has, in the space of about five years, become one of the country's best and most popular traditional jazz bands. On this their fourth CD for P.E.K. Sound they continue to build on their already solid reputation for top quality musicianship and entertainment, and for a wide repertoire of tunes which spans most styles of traditional jazz. This CD was recorded over two days in April 2009. The band line-up is Chris Mercer trumpet, ... [MORE]

JOHN SHILLITO'S SELECT SIX - Friday Night in New Orleans - DOUBLE CD

CD / Product Number: PKCD342

I recorded this amazing session by John's band at the 2009 Keswick Festival and here, on two CDs, you have every tune from that session. Sometimes when I sit down with a band-leader to listen to a recording and select the tunes for a CD it is difficult to know what to leave out because there are so many worthy tracks. On this occasion however we agreed that every single track was far too good to be dropped and so here, for the first time on P.E.K. Sound, ... [MORE]

Brian Carrick's Algiers Stompers with Shirley Alexander - New Orleans Gospel and Dance Hall Jazz
£12.99

Brian Carrick's Algiers Stompers with Shirley Alexander - New Orleans Gospel and Dance Hall Jazz

CD / Product Number: PKCD341

Brian first met Shirley Alexander in New Orleans in 2004 in his opinion she is the nearest you will find today to the sound of the legendary Mahalia Jackson. Brian wanted to bring Shirley to the UK but Hurricane Katrina in 2005 disrupted their plans and it was 2008 before Shirley made the trip to Britain. She appeared with Brian's Algiers Stompers at the 2008 Keswick Jazz Festival and, the day after the Festival ended we recorded this CD in the Methodist ... [MORE]

£12.99

SLIDE BY SLIDE - Live and Kickin'

CD / Product Number: PKCD340

Here is something very different from the usual run of traditional jazz bands! How refreshing it is to hear something different and new. As the band name implies this is a trombone-led band which features Kevin Grenfell and Richard Leach who are two of the best, and best-known, trombonists on the British jazz scene. Some time ago Kevin approached Richard with the idea of forming a band based around a trombone duo, and early in 2009 Slide By Slide was ... [MORE]

AMY ROBERTS' Gentlemen of Jazz - I'm Confessin'

CD / Product Number: PKCD339

In today's traditional jazz world there is a handful of talented young musicians - Amy Roberts is one of this select group. She first appeared on the club scene in Cornwall (her home county) as a schoolgirl a few years ago. Now (Autumn 2009) aged 21 she is studying music at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, and at the same time she is making a name for herself on the jazz club and festival scene. This, the first CD by her own band, was ... [MORE]

DENNIS ARMSTRONG'S OLIVER BAND - Completing the Set

CD / Product Number: PKCD338

I am so excited about this CD! It has been a lifelong passion of Dennis's to play the Oliver Creole Band tunes not to slavishly copy the original recordings - there are plenty of bands trying to do that with varying degrees of success - and I must say I wonder why! What is the point of trying to copy great jazz which was played so brilliantly over 80 years ago? No, Dennis's goal was (and still is!) to recreate the spirit and excitement of that legendary ...

THE STORYVILLE ALLSTARS - Dapper Dan from Dundee Town

CD / Product Number: PKCD337

The Storyville Allstars is an ocasional band, drawn from two highly experienced Dundee-based jazz groups, who get together a few times a year to play at the beautiful Discovery Point (so named because Captain Scott's ship Discovery is moored there) on the Dundee Waterfront. Their concerts have taken place since 1990 and are always very popular. They are joined by two remarkable singers - Fionna Duncan will be familiar to many of you she sang with the ... [MORE]
