|Hadleigh Jazz Records ||"Art Themen - Thane & The Villeins" |
Thane & The Villeins is the first album on the new independent label Hadleigh Jazz Records. It is also the first release of a trio comprising veteran tenor sax player Art Themen, organist Pete Whittaker and drummer George Double.
The reviews are excellent: "Themen is one of the very few totally original, utterly engaging jazz musicians around" Dave Gelly - "Magesterial...Art's version of Willow Weep For Me is enthralling" Jack Kenny - "Themen a veteran master now, in such eloquent form" Peter Vacher.
It was recorded at the University of Nottingham in 2019.
Stan Tracey - wisdom in the wings" |
This 2 CD set re-issues two of Stan Tracey's Columbia LP albums from 1969. Recorded within a few weeks of each other this is the first time they have been available in over fifty years. Due to poor sales they were both deleted by the record company shortly after the initial release and had not been re-issued in any format until now by Clark Tracey's Resteamed label.
The first, "Free an' one" is a quartet session with altoist Peter King...The second, titled "The Seven Ages of Man", is by Stan's star-studded big band that included Hank Shaw, Keith Christie, Peter King, Tony Coe, Alan Skidmore and Ronnie Ross among others.
