ROGER MARKS - In Retrospect - Marks out of Twenty

ROGER MARKS - In Retrospect - Marks out of Twenty
CD / Product Number: URCD270

Roger Marks’ Armada Jazz Band toured Britain and, to a lesser extent Europe, extensively for 25 years appearing repeatedly at the majority of the jazz clubs and festivals and enjoyed great popularity with the public and critics alike, receiving generous air-play on BBC Radio 2 in particular.
This CD will appeal to a large audience being very much BBC Radio 2 repertoire as well as interesting for the jazz aficionados. Humphrey Lyttelton really liked Roger Marks’ playing and gave him a lot of airplay during his lifetime. I have more than once drawn attention on this program me to the superbly articulated and richly toned trombone playing of Plymouth - based trombonist Roger Marks. Humphrey Lyttelton 31st July 2000 on playing ‘O Sole Mio’ on BBC 2 broadcast 'Best of Jazz'.

… one of the most accomplished trombone men in Europe ... Brian Harvey. Just Jazz. Sept 2008
It’s my belief, voiced more than once on this programme , that the fluent, warm and sonorous trombone playing of West Country based Roger Marks – cutting as it does a wide swathe of traditional cum mainstream jazz – is of world class quality and should be acclaimed as such. Humphrey Lyttelton.
