The second in our series celebrating great British jazzmen is released to mark the second anniversary of the death of Terry Lightfoot. In a recording from 1990, originally released as Stardust, Terry demonstrates the versatility of his playing and his band leading. From the start of his career in the mid 1950s, Terry's name has been synonymous with quality of sound and presentation.In this recording from 1990, Terry Lightfoot and his band clearly demonstrate their versatility and ability to play a wide span of repertoire. With a programme ranging from the Bob Crosby classic Big Noise from Winnetka to a fine small band version of Duke Ellington’s hauntingly beautiful Black and Tan Fantasy, the band shows an uncanny ability to switch from a conventional and traditional jazz format to interpretations of big band classics.
As well as good arrangements and tight ensemble work, the band has fine soloists within its ranks, all of whom get the opportunity to shine on this album.

Reviews of This Recording

Listening to the music on this CD has been a pleasant surprise. The musicians' skills in playing their instruments are first class, especially Terry Lightfoot himself who, the the past, I have not listened to much..... This CD is recommended for its eclectic range of tunes and vigorous and very polished Traditional/Mainstream jazz performances.
