There have been any number of compilations along the line of 'Trad Greats' or 'Trad Favourites' which often seem like re-workings of the same material. This collection is an attempt to tell the story of the Traditional Jazz musical genre in the UK which had a pre-history in the 1930s, got properly underway in the 1940s and grew to be at the forefront of popular music during the 1950s and early 1960s. As well as the mainstays of messrs Ball, Barber, and Bilk this collection includes many of the lesser known and regional bands who added to the music's popularity. Out of the 73 tracks many are previously unissued or extremely rare. The narrative in a 40 page booklet puts the bands and the music into perspective.
