Product Details

Continuing the 'additions' to the triple album set 'A POTTED HISTORY OF BRITISH TRADITIONAL JAZZ' (LACD300) this collection take a snapshot view of the large number of bands which were formed in various part of the country as a result of the interest in Traditional Jazz. Aside from the major bands these local bands were the backbone of the scene often playing weekly in a local club. Some like Bristol's Avon Cities Jazz Band achieved some national recognition and landed recording contracts while others, like Carlisle's Gateway Jazz Band were rooted in their region. Some produced musicians who went on to greater things: John Barnes emerged from the Zenith 6 to become one of the UK's leading Jazz reedmen. The trumpet player in Bill Croft's band based in Newcastle Upon Tyne was John Walters went on to be a BBC producer working with John Peel. Some had a long lifespan whilst others were quite shortlived. There are many such bands still around today. This CD contains many rare tracks and some released for the very first time.
