Down By The Riverside - Storyville Allstars

Down By The Riverside - Storyville Allstars
CD / Product Number: PKCD358

Of all the venues where I have recorded jazz bands, and there've been quite a few, one of the most scenic and attractive is Discovery Point in Dundee. The modern first floor concert room overlooks the dock where Captain Scott's ship Discovery is moored, and floodlit at night - very lovely. It's also the furthest North I've ever recorded. Last October Ann and I drove to Dundee to record the Storyville Allstars' annual concert. All was going well until about two hours before the start when the news reached us that Dave Fimister the trumpet player with the band had just been rushed into hospital with a suspected heart attack. At that late stage there was no prospect of finding a dep trumpet player so the band went on stage as a six-piece led by Walt Smith on clarinet. The result was a huge success! The reduced line-up is Walt Smith clarinet Frank Rossiter trombone Iain Mathieson keyboard John Whyte guitar Calum McKenzie double bass Mike Hardie drums and Yvonne Robb vocal on six tracks.
