KENNY BAKER'S DOZEN Play Not Quite Two Dozen

KENNY BAKER'S DOZEN Play Not Quite Two Dozen

CD / Product Number: JASCD631

Trumpeter Kenny Baker seems to have been around forever, certainly as far as the lives of most collectors reading these notes. His death not so long ago left a void which has been impossible to fill, both for collectors of Big Band music, Jazz lovers, and in particular those who enjoyed trumpet playing, not least for the musicians he regularly played with. Kenny was born at Withernsea, East Yorkshire. His mother was a violin player and gave piano lessons ... [MORE]

CHARLIE PARKER - The Quintets 1945 - 1951 - DOUBLE CD

CD / Product Number: JASCD630

Charlie PARKER feat. Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, etc. The Quintets 1945 - 1951 / Collaborations - Bird Meets The Jazz Giants
The history and development of the small Jazz ensemble can be charted by the work of several key groups: Louis Armstrong's Hot Fives and Hot Sevens, the Kansas City Seven, Benny Goodman's Trios and Quartets, Lennie Tristano's Sextet, Miles Davis' various Quintets and Sextets from the late Fifties to the mid-Sixties, The Jazz ...

EDDIE 'LOCKJAW' DAVIS - Oh Gee! - Live In Manchester 1967 - DOUBLE CD
£14.99

EDDIE 'LOCKJAW' DAVIS - Oh Gee! - Live In Manchester 1967 - DOUBLE CD

CD / Product Number: JASCD629

Eddie Davis gained his nickname 'Lockjaw' from the title of one of his earliest recordings, although it could have been applied equally to the intense, immobile embouchure that clamped around his tenor saxophone mouthpiece whenever he blew. Lockjaw's sound, or rather sounds, were the product of the twin influences of Rhythm and Blues and an apprenticeship in the Swing bands of Cootie Williams (alongside Charlie Parker), Andy Kirk and others in the ...

BILL COLEMAN - A Smooth One - Live in Manchester May1967 - DOUBLE CD

CD / Product Number: JASCD628

Trumpeter Coleman, strongly influenced by Louis Armstrong, belongs to that generation of jazz musicians (He was born in 1904) who set the standard for instrumental performances in the 1930's. But for the fact that he spent 80 of his career in Europe he would today be one of the icons of early jazz, comparable in stature to Coleman Hawkins, Red Allen or Benny Carter. This CD recorded in England in 1967, finds him in great form, not at all enfeebled by ... [MORE]

MODERN JAZZ AT THE ROYAL FESTIVAL HALL 1954 - Various Artists

CD / Product Number: JASCD627

It happened in 1954. A full-scale festival of jazz was held in one of London's Royal concert halls - and financially, as well as artistically, it was a resounding success! The National Jazz Federation, a non-profit making body dedicated to the furtherance of British jazz, was responsible for the event which took place at the Royal Festival Hall on October 30. An afternoon concert for the modernists and an evening show for traditional jazz lovers made up ... [MORE]

THE JAZZ COURIERS - The First and Last Words

CD / Product Number: JASCD626

Those who have JASMINE JASCD 617 'Tubby Hayes - The Swinging Giant, Vol. 2' will be familiar with the circumstances surrounding the formation of one of the legendary modern jazz groups of the late 1950s, The Jazz Couriers. Co-led by tenor saxophonists Tubby Hayes and Ronnie Scott, during its fairly short duration it has gone down in the annals of British modern jazz history as one of the most swinging, cohesive and urgent sounding groups of its type. ...

VICTOR FELDMAN In London Volume 2
£14.99

VICTOR FELDMAN In London Volume 2

CD / Product Number: JASCD625

This is the third re-release fo Victor Feldman's material from the Tempo label. There's some good material here, most notably the superb 'Blues In Two Moods', a stunning big band piece that vividly brings to mind the gloomy London of the mid 1950's, and Jimmy Deuchards excellent moody trumpet on the equally atmospheric 'It Ain't Necessarily So'. This is a worthwhile album, and it's good to see this material again. Also Available By Victor Feldman ... [MORE]

JIMMY DEUCHAR - Pal Jimmy

CD / Product Number: JASCD624

One of the least happy features of the local jazz scene since April 1957 has been the continued absence of Jimmy Deuchar. Since Victor Feldman's departure for America, Jimmy has been probably the most mature and complete all-round musician in British jazz. Jimmy is a 'natural' born musician. As a trumpet player, he ranks among the best ever heard here. He can read almost anything on sight, and blow jazz on sequences he's never seen before. He has ... [MORE]

THE JAZZ FIVE - The Five of Us
£14.99

THE JAZZ FIVE - The Five of Us

CD / Product Number: JASCD623

This band has several characteristics in common with The Couriers. It has a two-saxophone front line - tenor and baritone as opposed to the two tenors of Ronnie Scott and Tubby Hayes. The personnel strikes a remarkably happy balance between experienced young 'veterans' and talented, enthusiastic youngsters. Like The Couriers, The Jazz Five has a definite and very personal sound. The two saxophones achieve a remarkably wide range. The band's book contains ... [MORE]

VICTOR FELDMAN - In London Volume 1

CD / Product Number: JASCD622

Victor Stanley Feldman. Born London on April 7, 1934. Started (on drums) at age of six and made first professional appearance at age seven at the famous No. 1 Rhythm Club. His trio featured brothers Bob (clarinet) and Monty (accordion). Was known as 'Kid Krupa', and appeared as guest star with the late Major Glenn Miller's Band of the A.E.F.

JIMMY DEUCHAR - Opus de Funk

CD / Product Number: JASCD621

The themes in this collection were all specially written and scored by Jimmy for a group of his long-time associates, all of whom had at one time or another been his colleagues in the Ronnie Scott and Tony Crombie line-ups. Hear Jimmy with both Derek Humble and Ken Wray on two earlier dates on JASMINE JASCD 616 'Jimmy Deuchar Showcase'. 'E' is in an easy-riding groove, moving along at a slowish tempo. The blueprint needs just the simplest explanation: ... [MORE]

TUBBY HAYES - The Swinging Giant Volume 2

CD / Product Number: JASCD617

Introducing The Jazz Couriers....There are just a few things that can and generally go wrong on a jazz date, but the session that produced this album was a quite remarkable exception. Everything went right from the start. There was a great feeling of co-operation amongst all concerned, and the result is one of the most enjoyably unpretentious albums of British jazz yet recorded. We do all our Tempo session recordings at the Decca studios in Broadhurst ... [MORE]

DIZZY REECE - A New Star

CD / Product Number: JASCD615

This is what musicians call a 'blowing session'. No attempt to create any so-called 'new sounds'. Just honest-to-goodness, down-to-earth, relaxed swinging jazz. This date gives a real first recording break to one of the British jazz scene's 'musicians' musicians', trumpeter Dizzy Reece.Dizzy's following is confined to just about every musician who has blown with him, a handful of knowledgeable fans (the kind who dig Miles Davis) and a couple of critics. ...

MODERN JAZZ SCENE 1956 featuring Tubby Hayes, Vic Ash etc

CD / Product Number: JASCD614

he occasion was the National Jazz Federation's annual concert presentation 'The Jazz Scene'. The place was London's luxury Royal Festival Hall, built in 1951 and blessed with some of the finest acoustics. The bands participating were the new Ronnie Scott Orchestra with Tony Crombie (their section has an LP to itself on another label) and, exclusive to Tempo recording artists, the Tubby Hayes Orchestra, poll-winning clarinettist Vic Ash's Quartet, and the ...

DON RENDELL - Meet Don Rendell

DON RENDELL - Meet Don Rendell

CD / Product Number: JASCD613

Firstly, perhaps as a warm up, or maybe just to test the balance, who knows? This session, which in all produced nine tracks for issue, began by spotlighting Damian with just bass and drums in bright and swinging mode on Johnny Mandell's 'Sinbad The Tailor', an item which could not have been a better pointer to the wonderful quality and expertise of the jazz which was to follow in the four Sextet tracks.

TONY CROMBIE - Swinging Music in the Modern Manner
£14.99

TONY CROMBIE - Swinging Music in the Modern Manner

CD / Product Number: JASCD612

For an eight piece band this live recording from the late 1950's is very full and powerful, Tony Crombie's drums and Kenny Napper's bass push the fast numbers along, but show sensitivity in the quieter tunes. Stan Tracey, Britain's best-ever jazz pianist and easily up there with the world's finest, really shows his unique style. Acclaimed by musicians, fans and several leading critics, the orchestra on this disc publicly performed for just seventeen weeks ... [MORE]

TUBBY HAYES - The Eigth Wonder
£14.99

TUBBY HAYES - The Eigth Wonder

CD / Product Number: JASCD611

This CD takes it name from an old Tempo Ep of Tubby's, on which he plays all the instruments except bass and drums. All the numbers from that disc-an interesting diversion, and a testament to the man's versalatility- are present and correct, but the majority of the tracks come from Tubby's Groove, his last album for Decca's jazz offshoot Tempo and his first since the break-up of the Jazz Couriers. Indeed, the line-up is that of the final incarnation of ... [MORE]

VICTOR FELDMAN - Departure Dates

CD / Product Number: JASCD609

It's hard to believe that this is the work of a 20 year old man. Feldman's composing, arrangements and playing are mature and confident. This was one of three Tempo sessions which Victor Feldman made just before leaving London for New York in the autumn of 1955. Victor, regarded by many of his fellow musicians as the most brilliant talent ever to come out of British jazz, was in complete charge of the music to be played, the selection of musicians for the ...

WILTON 'Bogey' GAYNAIR - Blue Bogey

WILTON 'Bogey' GAYNAIR - Blue Bogey

CD / Product Number: JASCD608

The name is Wilton 'Bogey' Gaynair. He plays tenor. Though the name may be new to you now, I think you'll hear it often in the future. Wilton hails from Kingston, Jamaica, and was a schoolboy contemporary of trumpeter Dizzy Reece (who can be heard on many Tempo sessions) and saxist Joe Harriott. [MORE]

AL HIBBLER - Starring Al Hibbler - Here's Hibbler

CD / Product Number: JASCD605

There is something magical and thoroughly original in the singing style of Al Hibbler. To put into words what happens exactly when he opens his wonderful pipes is difficult at best. His unique phrasing, his octave slides, his foggy, deep-throated quality, taken separately, might spell a limited performer. But add them up, together with Hibbler's highly personalised interpretation of a song - and what it says - and you have what is without question one of ... [MORE]

Steve LAWRENCE and Eydie GORME Sing the Golden Hits

CD / Product Number: JASCD600

Steve and Eydie were singing Gershwin, Porter, and Tin Pan Alley in the 1950's while the rest of the world was listening to artists like Elvis, Johnny Ray. Steve and Eydie were keeping the popular American songbook alive along with Tony Bennett, Keely Smith, Carmen McRae and a few others. Though they were not as jazz orientated as others, on these two sets (originally issued on DOT LPs) they are at their best. They swing through standards and lesser known ... [MORE]

DALE HAWKINS - The Singles As and Bs 1956-60

CD / Product Number: JASCD599

With drawling delivery, sense of humour, affinity for blues, and sharp guitar work, Dale Hawkins was one of the most exciting early rockabilly singers. For the first time the A and B sides of his first 14 singles are appearing on one package including 'Susie Q' which is one of the all time classics of rock and roll with one of the most recognisable guitar riffs in rock history! Dale Hawkins certainly had a knock of surrounding himself with great musicians ... [MORE]

THE SHIRELLES and the EVOLUTION OF THE GIRL GROUP SOUND - Various Artists - Double CD

CD / Product Number: JASCD598

This compilation traces the girl group sound back to its RnB roots in 1952 and journeys through the '50s with acts like The Chordettes, The Poni Tails, The Chantels and The Bobbettes. Includes such classic hits as 'Eddie My Love', 'Born to Be with You', 'Maybe', 'Born Too Late' and the first ever single by The Supremes who in 1960 were recording as The Primettes. The girl group sound is synonymous with the 1960s and it was The Shirelles who led the ... [MORE]
