Best of British Jazz From the BBC Jazz Club, Vol. 6

Best of British Jazz From the BBC Jazz Club, Vol. 6

by Nat Gonella



Unlike the other five CDs in this series, rather than concentrating on three or four groups, this 1997 release has two songs apiece from nine British trad bands, taken from the previously unreleased archives of the BBC Jazz Club, a weekly radio series. Featured are Nat Gonella & His Georgians (the trumpeter/vocalist is heard in good form in 1960), pianist Ray Foxley's Original Levee Ramblers (recreating a couple of Jelly Roll Morton performances), trumpeter Freddie Randall's septet, clarinetist Cy Laurie, trumpeter Mike Daniels' Delta Jazzmen, tenor saxophonist Harry Gold's Pieces of Eight, the Merseysippi Jazz Band, and Ken Colyer's 1955 combo. Colyer's Skiffle Group (from 1953) is also featured, with the leader and Lonnie Donegan playing guitars (Chris Barber is on bass) and singing a couple of Leadbelly folk songs. A continually interesting release from a very valuable series.
