THE BATEMAN BROTHERS JAZZ BAND – NOW YOU HAS JAZZ
Artist: THE BATEMAN BROTHERS JAZZ BAND
***VOTED BEST CD – 2011 BRITISH JAZZ AWARDS*** It is a long time since a really top quality traditional style Jazz band appeared on the scene, but the Bateman brothers (Ian & Alan) have formed one. The band is based around reworking the material of the Louis Armstrong All Stars of the 1950s. All the musicians are top quality: Ian Bateman – Trombone; Alan Bateman – Trumpet; Trevor Whiting – Reeds; Craig Milverton – Piano; John Day – bass; Steve Rushton – Drums plus Maggie Reeday – Vocals. The band captures the very essence of this music.
