£12.99
CD / Product Number: JCCD3103

Here we have Ken Colyer with the Classic Jazz Band on a visit to Stockholm in 1986. These are recently discovered additional tracks from a concert at The Stockholm Jazz and Blues Festival in June 1986. The Classic Jazz Band was Jens Lindgren - Goran Eriksson - Goran Lind - Holger Gross - Cacka Ekhe make up the band. These are Colyer's very last recordings.
This is a recording that deserves to belong in any New Orleans jazz collection not because it is The Guv'nor's last hurrah, but because it is wonderful jazz. - Geoff Boxell

Cadence Magazine — U. S. Jazz Magazine
Big Bill Bissonnette's Jazz Crusade label continues to serve trad Jazz/revivalist fans with recently unearthed and/or new discoveries. One of the label's latest finds is additional material from British jazz legend/trumpeter Ken Colyer's visit to Stockholm, Sweden, for two Jazz Festival concerts, one in June, and the other, in August of 1986. Coming near the end of his life, these issues are billed as Colyer's 'very last band recordings' (Colyer died in 1988). The ten song program finds Colyer in the company of like-minded Swedes from that country's Classic Jazz Band. The session finds Colyer in good spirits and backed by a band of competent, if mildly passive,, but supportive players. Colyer clearly enjoys himself, whether due to his sly ensemble work or words of vocal encouragement. - Jay Collins
