EASY RIDERS JAZZ BAND - Then and Now - Volume 1 'Then'
£12.99
CD / Product Number: JCCD3037

These recordings date from the summer of 1965 when Sammy Rimington first played with the Easy Riders. They were recorded by George Buck, but not released at the time, and he generously agreed that they be included on this series, together with some tunes from the new band. Hence, these tracks are the 'Then' (1968). Volume 2 has the tracks from the 'Now' (ie 1998!) Jazz Crusade's very own BIG BILL BISSONNETTE on trombone with his Easy Riders Jazz Band. Band personnel are SAMMY RIMINGTON reeds, FRED VIGORITO clarinet,BILL SINCLAIR piano, DICK GRIFFITH banjo, MOULDY DICK McCARTHY string bass and ART PULVER on drums.

Reviews of This Recording

On sparkling form, Sammy (Rimington) is in the splendid company of Fred Vigorito, on vigorous cornet, and (The Easy Riders) legendary rhythm section, together for many years - Bill Sinclair, Dick Griffiths, Dick McCarthy and Art Pulver. They burn it up with rare delight on a rousing collection of standards....if you didn't buy it Then, you might care to now!
