CD / Product Number: URCD275

Mike Pointon has compiled this CD from a live recording from December 20th 1975 at a great Christmas party at Wimbledon Belgrave Harriers. There is an interesting and refreshing line-up with Ken Colyer cornet, vocals, Roger Bird clarinet, Mike Sherbourne trombone, Ray Smith piano, Bill Stotesbury banjo, Annie Hawkins string bass, Colin Bowden drums. Ken Colyer includes several numbers he had used over the years but as ever, he always manages to produce fresh versions of well-known standards.72 minutes of great jazz as only Colyer can play - Mike Pointon has deliberately chosen long versions of tunes played live for ultimate enjoyment.

Reviews of This Recording

.....Altogether then, this is an excellent CD and most certainly Colyer aficionados will want to have it. But anyone who likes the New Orleans style will find it most congenial. It is a little over an hour and ten minutes of fine music that will not be out of place in anyone's collection. Bert Thompson - Just Jazz
