STEVE LANE'S FAMOUS SOUTHERN STOMPERS
REMEMBERING STEVE LANE
LACD347
Steve Lane is one of the unsung heroes of British Traditional Jazz. Trumpeter Lane formed his first band in 1949. He remained doggedly loyal to the Classic style of Jazz typified by King Oliver, Louis Armstrong and Jelly Roll Morton in the 1920s. Steve remained semi-professional all his life, but was highly respected as a mentor to many aspiring Jazz musicians over the years. Alongside his playing Steve also ran three record labels, VJM, Halcyon and Azure. This compilation covers a very fruitful ten year period in Steve Lane's career and, as well as theSouthern Stompers it includes 5 tracks by the VJM Washboard Band. Steve died in 2015 aged 95.

CHRIS BARBER'S JAZZ BAND
BARBER BACK IN BERLIN 1960
LACD346
****DOUBLE CD FOR THE PRICE OF ONE **** 'Barber In Berlin' is one of the most popular albums in Chris Barber's discography (see 'Classic Concerts Revisited' LACD323). It was recorded at the Deutschlandhalle in Berlin in 1959 in front of a capacity crowd of 12,000. Almost exactly a year later the band was back. No-one can remember the concert being recorded, but in 2015 a set of tapes appeared and this is the resulting CD. The band is on cracking form with solo turns from all the favourites, Monty Sunshine, Pat Halcox, the leader himself and, of course, Ottilie Patterson.

ANDY SCHUMM & ENRICO TOMASSO
WHEN LOUIS MET BIX
LACD345
The latest in the Vintage Recording Project series. Reputedly there was a jam session which took place in 1928 when Louis Armstrong was passing through Chicago and Bix Beiderbecke was playing there. They met for an after hours session. The two men had a mutual admiration for each other and both were young men at the peak of their powers. We have imagined that session and two of the world's leading exponents of the styles - Enrico (Louis) and Andy (Bix) - come together to bring it alive with the help of other leading players of vintage Jazz: Matthias Seuffert (reeds), Alistair Allan (trombone), Morten Gunnar Larsen (piano), 'Spats' Langham (banjo & guitar), Malcolm Sked (bass), Nicholas D. Ball (drums). This is 'hot' Jazz at its best!

MONTY SUNSHINE
REMEMBERING MONTY SUNSHINE
LACD344
***DOUBLE CD FOR THE PRICE OF ONE*** Monty's place in British Traditional Jazz circles ranks very high: he was in the legendary Crane River Jazz Band, he was in the first Ken Colyer's Jazzman, he was in Chris Barber's Jazz Band when it reigned supreme throughout the 1950s, he formed his own highly successful band from 1961 into the 2000s. His recording of Petite Fleur has never been unavailable since it was recorded in 1956, was a hit single in 1959 and paved the way for Acker Bilk to bring the clarinet to the fore. This compilation has rare and previously unissued tracks alongside many commercially available tracks by Monty. Also featured on the CDs are Ken Colyer, Chris Barber, Charlie Galbraith, Beryl Bryden and Johnny Parker. We have also reissued LACD47 featuring Monty's most popular line-up.

FREDDIE RANDALL
BEFORE & AFTER
LACD343
Freddy Randall was one of the legends of British Jazz. A fiery trumpeter who followed the Chicago/Dixieland route and, until Alex Welsh established his band, led the finest band of its type in the UK. Freddy dropped off the scene in 1958, returned briefly in the mid-sixties before returning to form a very fine band with clarinettist Dave Shepherd in 1972. This CD comprises the last set of recordings he made with his own band in 1957 before his first departure and a set recorded under the name of Britain's Greatest Jazz Band in 1972. This latter band, with one personnel change, became The Freddy Randall-Dave Shepherd All Stars. Both bands contained top class musicians and included on the CD are Dave Shepherd, George Chisholm, Brian Lemon, Al Gay, Pete Hodge, Gerry Salisbury, Kenny Baldock, Syd Boatman, Johnny Richardson and Buzz Green.

JEFF BARNHART & SPATS LANGHAM
WE WISH WE WERE TWINS
LACD342
Aside from reissue albums Jeff Barnhart and Spats Langham have appeared on more LAKE CDs than any other artists, but they have never before appeared on the same ones. Over the years that Jeff has been coming to the UK he and Spats have performed together in bands, in quartets and as a duo. They have a mutual admiration for each other's work so it seemed high time to put them together. The result was a superb, relaxed, good humoured recording session with both musicians enjoying working together and making music. The result is 21 tracks (79 minutes) of joyous, high calibre music making.

VARIOUS
AT A TANGENT Vol.7
LACD341
THE CHICAGO - DIXIELAND STYLE BANDS. This is the latest volume in the series which looks at various aspects of the British Traditional Jazz scene which are at a tangent to the triple album, BRITISH TRADITIONAL JAZZ - A POTTED HISTORY (LACD300). This compilation looks at the bands mostly inspired by the Chicago school of Jazz. It doesn't necessarily choose the most famous bands in the style - their CDs are readily available - but looks at some lesser known bands as well as some rare gems.

THE JAKE LEG JUG BAND
EVERYTHIN'S JAKE
LACD340
With their good humour, attention to detail and varied repertoire the JLJB have built up a considerable following in just over two years. This is their second CD for LAKE and it was their previous one (LACD330) which propelled them from obscurity to being very much in demand in both Jazz Clubs and Folk Clubs the length and breadth of the UK. Blues & Rhythm magazine said that their music had a "knockabout, good-time feel" which just about sums it up!

THE BIX PROJECT BAND
BIX OFF THE RECORD
LACD339
Another in the Vintage Recording Project series. It was suggested that we devote a CD to the music of the Jazz legend, Bix Beiderbecke. We didn't want it to be another band rehashing Bix's "greatest hits" so it was decided to look at tunes we know Bix played, but never recorded and some tunes current at the time which he might have played. With a number of leading exponents of Vintage Jazz congregating for the Classic Jazz Party in Whitley Bay we persuaded six of the musicians to stay behind and make this recording. The result turned out to be hugely satisfyingwith some top-notch playing: Andy Schumm is one of the finest interpreters of Bix's music anywhere in the world and he is given superb support from Kristoffer Kompen on trombone, Mauro Porro on reeds, David Boeddinghaus on piano, Frans Sjöström on bass sax and Josh Duffee on drums.

PAT HALCOX
REMEMBERING PAT HALCOX
LACD338
When Pat Halcox joined Chris Barber's Jazz Band in the early 1950s it started a remarkable career. It produced the longest serving partnership in Jazz anywhere in the world as Pat held the trumpet chair until 2008. He developed from a talented young player to one of our finest Jazz musicians playing with originality, a broad tone, considerable subtlety and finesse, but also plenty of fire and attack as and when required. Pat also developed the technique to take on the considerable challengesChris Barber presented to the band over the years. This DOUBLE-CD-FOR-THE-PRICE-OF-ONE set has Pat playing with Chris Barber's band on the first CD, with a few tracks from each decade. Guest appearances come from Alex Welsh and Kenny Ball. The second CD has Pat guesting with other bands - including Humphrey Lyttelton's and Alex Welsh's - playing with American visitors Art Hodes and Don Ewell and fronting his own All Stars. None of the tracks has ben released before.
