DIZ DISLEY - With Me Little Ukulele in Me Hand

DIZ DISLEY - With Me Little Ukulele in Me Hand
CD / Product Number: URCD280

This album is a true labour of love by one of British Jazz’s genuine originals paying tribute to one of variety’s immortals. Altogether the mood created by Diz and his choice of jazz musicians is one of sheer mischievous joy, evoking effortlessly the nostalgically raffish feel of a stroll along Blackpool’s slightly seedy Golden Mile many years ago. The CD includes two titles not recorded by Formby – I Was Waggling My Magical Wand and I Showed Me Testimonial. Great Album running 33 fun-filled minutes.

Reviews of This Recording

Diz proves a fine interpreter of Formby songs, never copying, but perfectly in tune with the mood and style of the originals.Alan Cooper's clarinet is slyly imaginative...Martin Fry's rolling tuba makes for a rousing finale to When I'm Cleaning Windows and Alan Roger's piano and Colin Bowden's drums bounce the whole thingg along very quickly.
