MONTY SUNSHINE
REMEMBERING MONTY SUNSHINE
LACD344
***DOUBLE CD FOR THE PRICE OF ONE*** Monty's place in British Traditional Jazz circles ranks very high: he was in the legendary Crane River Jazz Band, he was in the first Ken Colyer's Jazzman, he was in Chris Barber's Jazz Band when it reigned supreme throughout the 1950s, he formed his own highly successful band from 1961 into the 2000s. His recording of Petite Fleur has never been unavailable since it was recorded in 1956, was a hit single in 1959 and paved the way for Acker Bilk to bring the clarinet to the fore. This compilation has rare and previously unissued tracks alongside many commercially available tracks by Monty. Also featured on the CDs are Ken Colyer, Chris Barber, Charlie Galbraith, Beryl Bryden and Johnny Parker. We have also reissued LACD47 featuring Monty's most popular line-up.

FREDDIE RANDALL
BEFORE & AFTER
LACD343
Freddy Randall was one of the legends of British Jazz. A fiery trumpeter who followed the Chicago/Dixieland route and, until Alex Welsh established his band, led the finest band of its type in the UK. Freddy dropped off the scene in 1958, returned briefly in the mid-sixties before returning to form a very fine band with clarinettist Dave Shepherd in 1972. This CD comprises the last set of recordings he made with his own band in 1957 before his first departure and a set recorded under the name of Britain's Greatest Jazz Band in 1972. This latter band, with one personnel change, became The Freddy Randall-Dave Shepherd All Stars. Both bands contained top class musicians and included on the CD are Dave Shepherd, George Chisholm, Brian Lemon, Al Gay, Pete Hodge, Gerry Salisbury, Kenny Baldock, Syd Boatman, Johnny Richardson and Buzz Green.

JEFF BARNHART & SPATS LANGHAM
WE WISH WE WERE TWINS
LACD342
Aside from reissue albums Jeff Barnhart and Spats Langham have appeared on more LAKE CDs than any other artists, but they have never before appeared on the same ones. Over the years that Jeff has been coming to the UK he and Spats have performed together in bands, in quartets and as a duo. They have a mutual admiration for each other's work so it seemed high time to put them together. The result was a superb, relaxed, good humoured recording session with both musicians enjoying working together and making music. The result is 21 tracks (79 minutes) of joyous, high calibre music making.

AT A TANGENT Vol.7
LACD341
THE CHICAGO - DIXIELAND STYLE BANDS. This is the latest volume in the series which looks at various aspects of the British Traditional Jazz scene which are at a tangent to the triple album, BRITISH TRADITIONAL JAZZ - A POTTED HISTORY (LACD300). This compilation looks at the bands mostly inspired by the Chicago school of Jazz. It doesn't necessarily choose the most famous bands in the style - their CDs are readily available - but looks at some lesser known bands as well as some rare gems.

THE JAKE LEG JUG BAND
EVERYTHIN'S JAKE
LACD340
With their good humour, attention to detail and varied repertoire the JLJB have built up a considerable following in just over two years. This is their second CD for LAKE and it was their previous one (LACD330) which propelled them from obscurity to being very much in demand in both Jazz Clubs and Folk Clubs the length and breadth of the UK. Blues & Rhythm magazine said that their music had a "knockabout, good-time feel" which just about sums it up!

THE BIX PROJECT BAND
BIX OFF THE RECORD
LACD339
Another in the Vintage Recording Project series. It was suggested that we devote a CD to the music of the Jazz legend, Bix Beiderbecke. We didn't want it to be another band rehashing Bix's "greatest hits" so it was decided to look at tunes we know Bix played, but never recorded and some tunes current at the time which he might have played. With a number of leading exponents of Vintage Jazz congregating for the Classic Jazz Party in Whitley Bay we persuaded six of the musicians to stay behind and make this recording. The result turned out to be hugely satisfyingwith some top-notch playing: Andy Schumm is one of the finest interpreters of Bix's music anywhere in the world and he is given superb support from Kristoffer Kompen on trombone, Mauro Porro on reeds, David Boeddinghaus on piano, Frans Sjöström on bass sax and Josh Duffee on drums.

PAT HALCOX
REMEMBERING PAT HALCOX
LACD338
When Pat Halcox joined Chris Barber's Jazz Band in the early 1950s it started a remarkable career. It produced the longest serving partnership in Jazz anywhere in the world as Pat held the trumpet chair until 2008. He developed from a talented young player to one of our finest Jazz musicians playing with originality, a broad tone, considerable subtlety and finesse, but also plenty of fire and attack as and when required. Pat also developed the technique to take on the considerable challengesChris Barber presented to the band over the years. This DOUBLE-CD-FOR-THE-PRICE-OF-ONE set has Pat playing with Chris Barber's band on the first CD, with a few tracks from each decade. Guest appearances come from Alex Welsh and Kenny Ball. The second CD has Pat guesting with other bands - including Humphrey Lyttelton's and Alex Welsh's - playing with American visitors Art Hodes and Don Ewell and fronting his own All Stars. None of the tracks has ben released before.

CHRIS BARBER'S JAZZ & BLUES BAND
CLASS OF '78
LACD337
Following on from LACD332 this is another attempt to fill the gap of Chris Barber's recordings from the 1970s. This collection was one of the classic issues by the Barber band of the time and had some changes in personnel: Vic Pitt had joined on bass, Roger Hill had replaced John Slaughter and Pete York - a Rock drummer previously associated with the Spencer Davis Group and The Average White Band amongst others - had joined. The most significant change, though, Was the addition of a second reed in the front line. This role was undertaken by Sammy Rimington. Sammy, who was largely regarded as a strict New orleans style player had, actually had much more wide ranging experience and ability. It's a typical varied Chris Barber set, well recorded in concert.

THE NEW CENTURY RAGTIME ORCHESTRA
SINGIN' IN THE BATHTUB
LACD336
The eight piece NCRO was formed in 1998 with the intention of preserving and playing orchestrated Ragtime tunes. Over the intervening years the personnel has expanded to thirteen and the repertoire has widened to include Classic Jazz and Hot Dance music. Tunes on this CD date from 1903 and run the whole gamut up to 1931: classic Ragtime pieces to early Swing tunes; obscure tunes to the more familiar. This is no serious, straight-laced presentation, though; the band plays with a love of this music and the enthusiasm comes through loud and clear. Two guests join the band on the CD: Keith Nichols and Nick Ward

BRITISH TRADITIONAL JAZZ: AT A TANGENT VOL.6
LACD335
THE CLASSIC STYLE BANDS. Once the revival of Traditional Jazz got underway during the late 1940s and into the 1950s the bands started to split into different camps: those who followed the New Orleans style, those who favoured the Chicago style and those who preferred the Classic style typified by King Oliver, Louis Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton, Clarence Williams, et al. This CD presents a collection of bands who followed this latter course and provides a varied sample of the different approaches within that style.
