I'M WITH YOU WHERE YOU ARE - Steve Graham's New Orleans Jazz Band

I'M WITH YOU WHERE YOU ARE - Steve Graham's New Orleans Jazz Band
£12.99
CD / Product Number: PKCD367

Steve Graham is a hugely talented and very versatile trumpeter who appears in my catalogue on several CDs with various bands. This is the first CD by his recently formed New Orleans Band, recorded live at the 2011 Keswick Jazz Festival, and playing in the looser style we all associate with New Orleans-style jazz. What sets this band apart from many N.O.-style bands is their repertoire. Very few bands since Bunk Johnson's and, later, Ken Colyer's have attempted to play rags, mainly I suspect because most rags are complex pieces and are very demanding. Here we have two rags plus Freddie Keppard's challenging Stock Yards Strut. By the way there was much discussion and some research into the correct spelling of that tune - we think we've got it right! The band line-up is Steve Graham trumpet John Wurr clarinet alto sax Tom Whittingham trombone Mike Denham piano Mike Cox banjo Derek Jones double bass Chris Marchant drums. (72mins)
