STEVE LANE PLAYS VINTAGE JAZZ MUSIC
ARTIST: STEVE LANE’S FAMOUS SOUTHERN STOMPERS; STEVE LANE’S RED HOT PEPPERS; THE VJM WASHBOARD BAND
CD DESCRIPTION: Vintage Jazz music was what Steve Lane specialised in. From the late 1940s up until the 2000s Steve Lane’s various bands recreated the sounds of the Classic Jazz era of King Oliver, Jelly Roll Morton, Bix Beiderbecke and a whole host of others. Steve also ran the Vintage Jazz Music record label, VJM. Never content to simply carbon copy the originals Steve Lane would put his own stamp on the tunes whilst remaining true to the genre. Steve never turned professional, but a whole host of musicians who would make music their living served an apprenticeship in Steve’s bands. This, the second of our CDs featuring Steve Lane, reveals that, despite a changing personnel, it was a hot, tight little band with a distinctive feel to it.
