Listen to My Music, Vol. 3: 1947-48

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Arwulf Arwulf
One of at least seven Ted Heath compilations sharing the title Listen to My Music, this third volume in the Hep label's intensive Ted Heath reissue series contains British big-band swing recordings made between April 21, 1947 and December 16, 1948. Heath successfully navigated the stylistic riptides of swing and bop, his well-oiled ensemble always sounding fresh and contemporary yet snugly rooted in the tradition of accessible jazz and dance music. The repertoire on this disc includes Fats Waller's "London Suite" a marvelous work revisited by Heath in 1954, old time melodies by Stephen Foster and Rudolf Friml, a visitation from Robert Burns, and an assortment of melodies ...

All Music Guide - Arwulf Arwulf
One of at least seven Ted Heath compilations sharing the title Listen to My Music, this third volume in the Hep label's intensive Ted Heath reissue series contains British big-band swing recordings made between April 21, 1947 and December 16, 1948. Heath successfully navigated the stylistic riptides of swing and bop, his well-oiled ensemble always sounding fresh and contemporary yet snugly rooted in the tradition of accessible jazz and dance music. The repertoire on this disc includes Fats Waller's "London Suite" a marvelous work revisited by Heath in 1954, old time melodies by Stephen Foster and Rudolf Friml, a visitation from Robert Burns, and an assortment of melodies traceable to Tin Pan Alley, Dixieland, mainstream jazz and bebop. The odd tune out is an unpleasant attempt at "Feudin' and Fightin'," a gruesome novelty tune that was only funny when premiered by Dorothy Shay, that glamorous U.S. comedienne who was billed as "The Park Avenue Hillbilly." Although the stupid and vulgar rendition heard here is a low point in the Ted Heath discography, the other 25 tracks more than compensate for this unfortunate lapse in taste.
