RICHARD LEACH'S 7 STARS OF JAZZ - A Tip of the Hat Volume 2
At the 2015 Bude Jazz Festival Richard Leach's great band played a storming session at the Falcon Hotel and these two CDs are the result. Between them they contain twenty-one tracks - almost the entire session. It's six years since the band's last CD was recorded and there have been some personnel changes. Most significantly Gordon Whitworth's trumpet chair is now occupied by Gary Wood - a superbly talented musician. Also new to the band since their last CD are Rod Kelly on piano, Ian Parry on guitar and banjo, and John Fellows on double bass all names which will be well-known to many of you.
Volume 1 is on PKICD399 A veritable feast of great jazz.
