FRED HUNT DUO - Blues 'n' Boogie
£12.99

FRED HUNT DUO - Blues 'n' Boogie

CD / Product Number: LACD361

Pianist Fred Hunt quietly became a cult figure on the British Jazz scene. In the early 1950s he played semi-professionally before turning professional with Alex Welsh in 1954. He did two stints with the Welsh band (1954 – 1962 and 1964 -1974). During this time he carved out an enviable reputation. The Welsh band was the ‘go-to’ band for visiting Americans and so Fred played alongside, and recorded with, Bud Freeman, Wild Bill Davison, Ruby Braff and ... [MORE]

BRITISH TRADITIONAL JAZZ - At A Tangent Volume 9 - The Mainstream Bands

CD / Product Number: LACD359

Vol. 9 of the AT A TANGENT series is devoted to the MAINSTREAM bands involved in British Jazz. ‘Mainstream’ was a term coined in the 1950s to denote a more arranged Jazz sitting somewhere between Traditional/Dixieland and Bebop/Modern. It is akin to small band Swing and the main protagonist in the UK is always held to be Humphrey Lyttelton, but Kenny Baker and others were playing in the style before Humph did. The problem is that very few working bands ... [MORE]

FREDDY RANDALL and his Band - My Tiny Band is Chosen

CD / Product Number: LACD358

Of the new wave of British Traditional Jazz bands which emerged from the Traditional Jazz revival in the 1940s, Humphrey Lyttelton had the leading, most popular band and it was the band which secured the first record deal with a major label, Parlophone in 1949. Hot on Lyttelton’s heels was Freddy Randall who signed for Parlophone in 1951. The various stylistic ‘camps’ were emerging – New Orleans, Classic, Chicago/Dixieland and eventually Trad – and Freddy ... [MORE]

STEVE LANE Plays Vintage Jazz Music

CD / Product Number: LACD357

Vintage Jazz music was what Steve Lane specialised in. From the late 1940s up until the 2000s Steve Lane’s various bands recreated the sounds of the Classic Jazz era of King Oliver, Jelly Roll Morton, Bix Beiderbecke and a whole host of others. Steve also ran the Vintage Jazz Music record label, VJM. Never content to simply carbon copy the originals Steve Lane would put his own stamp on the tunes whilst remaining true to the genre. Steve never turned ... [MORE]

REMEMBERING MIKE DANIELS

CD / Product Number: LACD356

Mike Daniels formed his first band in the late 1940s when the emerging British traditional style Jazz bands were searching for an identity. Mike Daniels decided to model his band on the Classic bands of the 1920s, King Oliver, Jelly Roll Morton, Bix Beiderbecke et al. By the late 1950s the band was one of the best – and one of the few – to specialise in that style. The band’s golden period was the period covered by this CD. The band rarely recorded ... [MORE]

The JAKE LEG JUG BAND - Break a Leg

CD / Product Number: LACD354

The third album by the JLJB on the LAKE label. A new line-up with three new members, but what has not changed is the repertoire. As before the material is wide-ranging mixing Jazz, Blues, Gospel, and Folk songs – all the way from the Mississippi Sheiks to the Carter Family. They have gained an enviable reputation as a lively, feel-good band both looking and sounding the part. They are not slavish copiers, but stamp their own personality on all the ... [MORE]

REMEMBERING BEN COHEN Volume 2 - BEN COHEN with THE SONNY DEE ALL-STARS AND LAURIE CHESCOE’S GOODTIME JAZZ

CD / Product Number: LACD353

Ben Cohen, one of the legendary ‘backroom boys’ of British Traditional Jazz, spent his whole career in amateur or semi-professional bands, but was widely regarded as one of the best exponents of the early Louis Armstrong style of playing. He stuck doggedly to the cornet rather than the trumpet and was well-known for his blistering, but always tasteful, thoughtful solos and firm lead. After we released Vol.1 (LACD334) we had a number of queries as to ... [MORE]

HUMPHREY LYTTELTON - Dusting off the Archives

CD / Product Number: LACD352

In 1948 Humphrey Lyttelton formed his first full-time band and rapidly became the premier Traditional Jazz band in the UK. Several of the musicians who would become significant players later had formed bands, but until the Chris Barber Jazz Band came into being in 1954 Humph had no serious rivals. The band made early recordings on the small independent specialist Tempo and Esquire labels and in 1949 had landed a contract with the leading major label ... [MORE]

He left Ken Colyer and formed the Sims-Wheeler Vintage Jazz Band in 1959 along with trumpeter Ken Sims. It was a short stay before he got the call from Chris Barber to join his band replacing Monty Sunshine. Ian would spend 27 years in the Barber band playing clarinet, alto sax, soprano sax and ...

STEVE LANE'S FAMOUS SOUTHERN STOMPERS - Remembering Steve Lane

CD / Product Number: LACD347

Steve Lane is one of the unsung heroes of British Traditional Jazz. Trumpeter Lane formed his first band in 1949. He remained doggedly loyal to the Classic style of Jazz typified by King Oliver, Louis Armstrong and Jelly Roll Morton in the 1920s. Steve remained semi-professional all his life, but was highly respected as a mentor to many aspiring Jazz musicians over the years. Alongside his playing Steve also ran three record labels, VJM, Halcyon and ... [MORE]

CD / Product Number: LACD346

DOUBLE CD FOR THE PRICE OF ONE
'Barber In Berlin' is one of the most popular albums in Chris Barber's discography (see 'Classic Concerts Revisited' LACD323). It was recorded at the Deutschlandhalle in Berlin in 1959 in front of a capacity crowd of 12,000. Almost exactly a year later the band was back. No-one can remember the concert being recorded, but in 2015 a set of tapes appeared and this is the resulting CD. The band is on cracking form ... [MORE]

WHEN LOUIS MET BIX - Andy Schumm and Enrico Tomasso

CD / Product Number: LACD345

The latest in the Vintage Recording Project series. Reputedly there was a jam session which took place in 1928 when Louis Armstrong was passing through Chicago and Bix Beiderbecke was playing there. They met for an after hours session. The two men had a mutual admiration for each other and both were young men at the peak of their powers. We have imagined that session and two of the world's leading exponents of the styles - Enrico (Louis) and Andy (Bix) - ... [MORE]

REMEMBERING MONTY SUNSHINE - Double CD

CD / Product Number: LACD344

Monty's place in British Traditional Jazz circles ranks very high: he was in the legendary Crane River Jazz Band, he was in the first Ken Colyer's Jazzman, he was in Chris Barber's Jazz Band when it reigned supreme throughout the 1950s, he formed his own highly successful band from 1961 into the 2000s. His recording of Petite Fleur has never been unavailable since it was recorded in 1956, was a hit single in 1959 and paved the way for Acker Bilk to bring ... [MORE]

FREDDIE RANDALL - Before and After

CD / Product Number: LACD343

Freddy Randall was one of the legends of British Jazz. A fiery trumpeter who followed the Chicago/Dixieland route and, until Alex Welsh established his band, led the finest band of its type in the UK. Freddy dropped off the scene in 1958, returned briefly in the mid-sixties before returning to form a very fine band with clarinettist Dave Shepherd in 1972. This CD comprises the last set of recordings he made with his own band in 1957 before his first ... [MORE]

Over the years that Jeff has been coming to the UK he and Spats have performed together in bands, in quartets and as a duo. They have a mutual admiration for each other's work so it seemed high time to put them together. The result was a superb, relaxed, good humoured recording session with ... [MORE]

THE JAKE LEG BAND - Everythin's Jake

CD / Product Number: LACD340

With their good humour, attention to detail and varied repertoire the JLJB have built up a considerable following in just over two years. This is their second CD for LAKE and it was their previous one (LACD330) which propelled them from obscurity to being very much in demand in both Jazz Clubs and Folk Clubs the length and breadth of the UK.
