MAINLY MORTON - GEOFF COLE'S RED HOT 7

MAINLY MORTON - GEOFF COLE'S RED HOT 7
£12.99
CD / Product Number: JCCD3025

On this CD Geoff Cole takes on JR Morton for us. A formidable task under any circumstances, but this time made tougher due to Big Bill's standard rule of recording only spontaneous jazz on Jazz Crusade. This is not a copy of the original - it is a take on it, so we have a flavour of the great man bit it still swings in a more up-to-date fashion. In addition to Morton composed material we also have some that Morton just played. Hence the title - Mainly Morton.
It was recorded at the Bull's Head in Barnes, England in November 1996.
The personnel here are Geoff Cole on trombone, Alan Elsdon trumpet, Tony Pyke clarinet and alto sax, Pat Hawes on piano, Eric Webster banjo and guitar, Ken Matthews string bass and Chris Marchant on drums. Special guest appearance from Jelly Roll Morton on whistle and vocals!
