HELLISHLY HOT - The Wabash Jazzmen
£12.99

HELLISHLY HOT - The Wabash Jazzmen

CD / Product Number: PKCD271

This is the band's first CD with Gordon Whitworth on trumpet. The rest of the band is unchanged- Mike Hayler clarinet and tenor sax Mike Pembroke trombone Mark Challinor banjo and Howard Worthington double bass. It was recorded live on March 11th 2005 at Sutton Coldfield Jazz Club and the CD title is very appropriate - it really is a hot album! [MORE]

At The 2004 Bude Jazz Festival - CUFF BILLETT WITH THE DAVE DONAHOE BAND

CD / Product Number: PKCD270

I have waited nearly three years to record Dave’s fine band with Cuff Billet. A recording was planned at Keswick in 2002 but illness meant I missed the festival that year. So I was especially delighted when the chance came at Bude 2004 to record them together. This is one of the most exciting albums I have recorded in a very long time. Cuff Billet is without doubt one of the (if not the) finest New Orleans-style trumpeters playing today - anywhere, and ... [MORE]

ALWAYS A PLEASURE - THE HUGH RAINEY JAZZ BAND WITH CHARLES CONNOR
£12.99

ALWAYS A PLEASURE - THE HUGH RAINEY JAZZ BAND WITH CHARLES CONNOR

CD / Product Number: PKCD268

This is the band’s fifth CD for P.E.K. and I think their best. It was recorded (not live) in January 2005 in a single day no fewer than 26 tracks were recorded. Twenty of them appear on this CD which features the wide range of jazz material we come to expect from Hugh’s fine band. [MORE]

STRIKE TWO - RICHARD LEACH'S 7 STARS OF JAZZ
£12.99

STRIKE TWO - RICHARD LEACH'S 7 STARS OF JAZZ

CD / Product Number: PKCD267

As the title suggests this is the band’s second CD, recorded live in December 2004, just a year after their first CD. The line-up is unchanged from PKCD-243. The difference between the two recordings lies mainly in the fact that a busy year of playing together has created a terrific sense of unity within the band and great rapport in their playing. This really is a top class band in the style of The Alex Welsh Band of the 1950s to 1970s. Almost every ... [MORE]

NOW HERE'S A TUNE - DENNIS ARMSTRONG'S GREAT NORTHERN JAZZ BAND
£12.99

NOW HERE'S A TUNE - DENNIS ARMSTRONG'S GREAT NORTHERN JAZZ BAND

CD / Product Number: PKCD266

Here is the first CD for P.E.K. by this excellent band led by Dennis Armstrong cnt, with Peter Curtis cl, Terry McGrath tb, Malcolm Hogarth pno, Mike Sayles bjo, Isabel Toner bs and Dave Jenkins dms. In every respect this is a quality band, playing a wide range of traditional jazz, and paying great attention to playing the tunes as closely as possible to how they were written, some of them with the rarely-heard verse as well - something for which I ...

KEEP SWINGING  - THE JOHN HALLAM JAZZTET
£12.99

KEEP SWINGING - THE JOHN HALLAM JAZZTET

CD / Product Number: PKCD261

John Hallam has appeared on P.E.K. Sound with various bands (Jeff Barnhart’s British Band, Roger Heeley Trio, Crazy Rhythm and most recently The Harmony Hounds), but this is our first recording by his own quartet (live at the 2004 Keswick Festival). If their music had to be put in a pigeon-hole, I suppose it could be called lyrical swinging mainstream jazz. John’s sensitive and fluent clarinet and sax playing is brilliantly supported by Steve Moore ... [MORE]

Linger Awhile with The Tierra Buena Jazz Band
£12.99

Linger Awhile with The Tierra Buena Jazz Band

CD / Product Number: PKCD260

This super band, based near Coventry, has been going for nearly 50 years, still with three founder members. Their music covers a wide spectrum of traditional jazz styles, as the list of tune titles shows, and everything they play is done with great enthusiasm and good taste. An all-round excellent band, which really should be much more widely known. They had a cassette recorded about ten or so years ago but amazingly this is their first CD! [MORE]

Live at the 2004 Keswick Festival - JENSEN'S NEW ORLEANS JAZZ SERENADERS featuring Brian Carrick & Eddie Bruhner
£12.99

Live at the 2004 Keswick Festival - JENSEN'S NEW ORLEANS JAZZ SERENADERS featuring Brian Carrick & Eddie Bruhner

CD / Product Number: PKCD259

This is a family band - Kurt Jensen on clarinet and tenor sax, his wife Nan Ehrenstrale on double bass and daughter Nina on banjo and vocals, with drummer Ronald Anderson. At Keswick 2004 they were joined by Brian Carrick (clarinet and tenor sax) and Eddie Bruhner (trumpet). Having two reed players, both of whom doubled on clarinet and tenor sax, gave rise to some interesting sound variations - two clarinets on some tracks, two tenors on other tracks, ... [MORE]

Lucky For Some - THE JOHN MADDOCKS JAZZMEN
£12.99

Lucky For Some - THE JOHN MADDOCKS JAZZMEN

CD / Product Number: PKCD257

A new CD from the John Maddocks band is always a welcome treat and this one, recorded in June 2004 is especially exciting. John's band has gone through some personnel changes in recent times, with the retirement of Alan Potton and Brian Stockley from the band, and the partial retirement of Tony Farr. John seems to have struck gold in his replacement for Alan Potton. Peter Wilkinson is a fine musician with a lovely tone who has slotted effortlessly into ... [MORE]

Live at the 2004 Keswick Jazz Festival - THE SECOND LINE JAZZ BAND
£12.99

Live at the 2004 Keswick Jazz Festival - THE SECOND LINE JAZZ BAND

CD / Product Number: PKCD256

Here is the first CD for P.E.K. by another of Sweden's excellent traditional jazz bands. In recent years bands from Sweden have been making quite an impact at festivals in England, and deservedly so. This band is comprised of predominantly young musicians, all highly accomplished - Niklas Carlsson tb vocals, Jesper Albrektsson tpt vocals, Olof Skoog saxes vocals, Anders Wasen bjo, Per Bach bs, Anders Ostlund dms. This CD comes from two of their exciting ... [MORE]

TULANE NEW ORLEANS MUSIC - TRUE
£12.99

TULANE NEW ORLEANS MUSIC - TRUE

CD / Product Number: PKCD251

Hearing this recording again after an interval of nearly ten years reminded me what a truly great New Orleans-style band this was, and, despite some shortcomings in the recording, (it was ten years ago after all!) I am very pleased to have Pete Child's approval to re-issue this album. The line-up is Nigel Hunt trumpet - Hugh Roberts clarinet, tenor sax - Pete Child trombone - Geof Roberts piano - Bill Scott banjo - Roger White double bass - Roger Wells ... [MORE]

THE WABASH JAZZMEN - ON A COCONUT ISLAND
£12.99

THE WABASH JAZZMEN - ON A COCONUT ISLAND

CD / Product Number: PKCD250

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 ... [MORE]

COLLECTING GLASSES - JOHN MADDOCKS TRIO
£12.99

COLLECTING GLASSES - JOHN MADDOCKS TRIO

CD / Product Number: PKCD248

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 ... [MORE]

BEAR ESSENTIALS - CHICAGO TEDDYBEARS SOC JAZZ BAND

CD / Product Number: PKCD247

The Chicago Teddybears is one of Britain's longest established and most accomplished and popular Traditional Jazz Bands. Based in the north-west of England they have a huge following both at home and in many parts of Europe. The line-up has remained largely unchanged for many years, though this is the first recording with Dave Mott, their new reed player. The other band members are Ken Doran trumpet, Tony Dunleavy trombone, Neville Goodwin piano, Tony ... [MORE]

IN THE GOOD OLD SUMMER TIME - THE RAE BROTHERS NEW ORLEANS JAZZ BAND

CD / Product Number: PKCD246

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 ... [MORE]

PHIL WALL'S JAZZ CARDINALS - EVERY TUB
£12.99

PHIL WALL'S JAZZ CARDINALS - EVERY TUB

CD / Product Number: PKCD244

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 and alto sax, Rob Gribble baritone and tenor saxes, trombone, vocals, Sam Sims guitar, ... [MORE]

BORDERING on the WELSH - Richard Leach's 7 Stars of Jazz

CD / Product Number: PKCD243

SPECIAL OFFER - when it's gone, it's gone!
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 ...

WHEN YOUR HAIR HAS TURNED TO SILVER - Brian Carrick's Heritage Hall Stompers

CD / Product Number: PKCD239

The band line-up is Peter Wright tpt, Brian Carrick cl, Norman Thatcher tb, Ray Foxley pno, Sarah Thatcher bjo, Howard Worthington bs, Taff Lloyd dms.

It's over five years since there was a new CD by Brian's Heritage Hall Stompers and there has never been one with Ray Foxley and Brian together. This was recorded at the 2001 Bude Festival and, subsequently, in 2002, whilst Brian and I were discussing details of its release, Ray sadly died and so ... [MORE]

HARLEM MADNESS - Keith Nichols' Earthbound Spirits

CD / Product Number: PKCD237

This is the long-awaited CD by Keith Nichols' Trio, recorded at the 2003 Keswick Festival. The trio, Keith Nichols piano and vocals, Norman Field clarinet alto sax, and Nick Ward drums, played a superb session - two hours of concentrated high quality jazz and great fun. [MORE]

YOU CAN'T ESCAPE - Sonny Morris Delta Jazz Band
£12.99

YOU CAN'T ESCAPE - Sonny Morris Delta Jazz Band

CD / Product Number: PKCD232

In November 1993 I recorded this wonderful New Orleans-style band for a CD of Hymns and Spirituals. That weekend the band played two live sessions in West Lulworth, both of which I also recorded, but not with a view to releasing any of the material. In 2003 John Sirett approached me to discuss the possibility of producing a CD from those two sessions. And this is it. I think this band, formed by Sonny and Ben Marshall in 1989, should be regarded as one of ... [MORE]

DOWN HOME JAZZIN' - John Maddocks
£12.99

DOWN HOME JAZZIN' - John Maddocks

CD / Product Number: PKCD227

This CD is a reissue of some of the great tracks by John's Trio and Down Home Jazzers which I recorded at the Bude Festivals of 1995, 1996 and 1997. They were originally released on cassette only and have for a long while been unobtainable. Some of you will remember those exciting sessions at the Falcon Hotel which would start with the trio of John, Peter Tamplin (pno) and Chris Marchant (dms), and then add Mike Cox (bjo), Alan Potton (cornet) and then ...

£12.99

TOP OF THE LEAGUE - Maddocks-Huxley Reeds United

CD / Product Number: PKCD226

Here is the first CD on P.E.K. by this formidable musical partnership. George Huxley and John Maddocks are without doubt among the top handful of clarinet players in the country and, when they joined forces at the 2002 Bude Jazz Festival, the result, as you can hear, was sensational. The rest of the band is Simon Banks piano, Geoff Over banjo, Stuart Gledhill bass and Barry Norman drums. [MORE]
