BEN COHEN with BRIAN WHITE'S MAGNA JAZZ BAND
REMEMBERING BEN COHEN
LACD334
This is the first release in Lake's new LIMITED EDITION series. These are CDs of music or musicians which are not expected to be volume sales, but which deserve to be heard. They will appeal to collectors and completists as well as general buyers. This CD is dedicated to cornet player Ben Cohen. He came to public attention when he joined Chris Barber's New Orleans Jazz Band in 1950. From 1950 until his death in 2002 Ben Cohen became highly regarded as a fiery 'hot' player in the early Louis Armstrong mould. He played in the bands of Alex Revell, Cy Laurie, Ian Bell, The Temperance Seven, Mike Daniels and many others. Keith Nichols used him on his recreations of 1920s bands. Ben Cohen recorded for LAKE as a member of the Sonny Dee All Stars and Laurie Chescoe's Goodtime Jazz. This CD sees him with Brian White's Magna Jazz Band on previously unreleased tracks from 1979, 1984 and 1987. It is good, swinging jazz in the Chicago style and shows why Ben Cohen was so well regarded by musicians and jazz fans alike.

KEN MATHIESON'S CLASSIC JAZZ BAND
CLARINET GUMBO
LACD333
This the third CD on LAKE Records for Ken Mathieson's Classic Jazz Orchestra. Rather than simply run through the jazz of the Classic Jazz era in a Trad Jazz style Ken Mathieson takes the tunes and arranges them in a modern context for his eight piece band. The result is a refreshing take on often well-worn tunes - " so much of it is due to Ken's brilliant arrangements" said Just Jazz magazine of a previous release. The Scotsman newspaper commented that "Mathieson's crisp and intelligent arrangements give an original twist to familiar tunes". Again, that is much in evidence on this release and reinforces the timeless quality of these Jazz tunes. Previous albums have been on particular themes and this one is no different. The guest is the hugely talented New Orleans based clarinettist, Evan Christopher. The tunes are associated with legendary clarinet players - Bechet, Bigard,Simeon, Hall, Noone and others. Christopher is undoubtedly the star. but the rest of the band rise give first class support.

CHRIS BARBER'S JAZZ & BLUES BAND
JAZZ ME BLUES - THE 70s
LACD332
DOUBLE CD FOR THE PRICE OF ONE. In our extensive issue programme of Chris Barber CDs the 1970s have been neglected. Although Chris Barber had added the Blues guitar towards the end of the 1960s, the 1970s saw the renaming of the Jazz Band to the Jazz & Blues Band. This set is taken from the early part of the 70s before the addition of a second reed and although still rooted in the Jazz repertoire the band has played since its inception there was much more experimentation taking place. All the tracks here have been previously unreleased and include four tracks of Jimmy Witherspoon singing with the band and two bonus tracks of Chris playing with Muddy Waters' band. The CD release coincides with the publication of Chris Barber's autobiography also entitled 'JAZZ ME BLUES'.

VARIOUS
AT A TANGENT VOL.4 - THE TERRITORY BANDS
LACD327
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.

BOB WALLIS & HIS STORYVILLE JAZZMEN
A JAZZ CLUB SESSION WITH BOB WALLIS & HIS STORYVILLE JAZZMEN
LACD326
****DOUBLE CD FOR THE PRICE OF ONE**** Another in the series of recordings made by Allan Gilmour at the Dancing Slipper Jazz Club in Nottingham. The Storyville Jazzmen were at the very commercial end of the Trad Jazz period and these recordings are quite a revelation in that they show the band away from the concert stage and in a Jazz club "letting its hair down", playing some spirited Jazz and enjoying itself. It was a band of quality musicians and these well recorded sides show much better than its commercial recordings just what it was capable of.
