VARIOUS – BRITISH TRADITIONAL JAZZ GOES TO THE MOVIES
Artist: VARIOUS ARTISTS
NB: IN OUR BUDGET SERIES – LOOK UNDER BUDGET CDs. Music has always featured in films and quite often it reflected the popular music style of the day. The rising interest in Traditional Jazz in the UK through the 1950s and up to the ‘Trad Boom’ of the 1960s led to Traditional Jazz Bands appearing in films. There were those cashing in on the phenomenon, IT’S TRAD DAD, BAND OF THIEVES, and serious films with a Jazz content, THE WILD AND THE WILLING, LOOK BACK IN ANGER. This CD takes a broad look at the sound tracks from those films and several more.
