VARIOUS – BRITISH TRADITIONAL JAZZ – AT A TANGENT Vol.1
Artist: VARIOUS ARTISTS
LACD300 gave an overview of the development of Traditional Jazz in Britain. What it could not do was look at some of the things which were also happening. This CD is sub-titled ‘Breaking The Mould’ because it looks at bands and musicians who did not always pursue a predictable path. Humphrey Lyttelton was not the only one moving into a more Mainstream style and this CD looks at some of those musicians. There also bands which were not averse to trying things out with musicians from other styles of Jazz. The CD contains some interesting surprises
