FREDDY RANDALL and his Band - My Tiny Band is Chosen

FREDDY RANDALL and his Band  - My Tiny Band is Chosen
CD / Product Number: LACD358

Of the new wave of British Traditional Jazz bands which emerged from the Traditional Jazz revival in the 1940s, Humphrey Lyttelton had the leading, most popular band and it was the band which secured the first record deal with a major label, Parlophone in 1949. Hot on Lyttelton’s heels was Freddy Randall who signed for Parlophone in 1951. The various stylistic ‘camps’ were emerging – New Orleans, Classic, Chicago/Dixieland and eventually Trad – and Freddy Randall along with a couple of other notables went down the Chicago/Dixieland route personified by the Eddie Condon bands in the USA. Randall’s fiery trumpet playing was admirably suited to the style and Freddy Randall’s hard-driving band was one of the best of its kind. Many legends of British Jazz passed through the ranks of the band over the years and this selection presents the cream of the recordings made for Parlophone between 1952 and 1957.
