Serenading Auntie

Trumpeter Ken Colyer's influential New Orleans-style bands of the 1950s are featured on this British CD. The 21 performances are taken from five live performances taped for the BBC. While the first six numbers (from 1960) match Colyer with trombonist Graham Stewart and clarinetist Sammy Rimington, the other numbers feature trombonist Mac Duncan and clarinetist Ian Wheeler in Colyer's sextet/septet. The recording quality varies from date to date, as do the musicians' intonations (they are usually in tune). The repertoire is highlighted by jazz versions of some ragtime tunes (including "Thriller Rag," "Hilarity Rag" and "Heliotrope Bouquet"), as well as obscurities from the 1920s and a few standards. Trad fans will enjoy this formerly rare music.
