Ol’Man River - Climax Jazz Band 1981.
It was in 1981, about 10 years after our band was created. I have chosen on of my favourite tunes from this album. Ol’ Man River is an old standard and I’m always reminded by that 1928 recording of Bix Beiderbecke. These old 78’s (Bix) and also the newer LP’s (the track here on Youtube) are virtually forgotten. I like to bring this back. Hope you like it as much as we did when we made it.
In the band: Bob Erwig cornet, Ian Arnott clarinet, Len Gosling trombone, Jack Vicken banjo, Chris Daniels bass and Max Littlejohns srums
