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

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