BOB WALLIS & HIS STORYVILLE JAZZMEN – A JAZZ CLUB SESSION WITH BOB WALLIS & HIS STORYVILLE JAZZMEN
Artist: BOB WALLIS & HIS STORYVILLE JAZZMEN
****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.
