Description

Good foot-stompin' Trad Jazz with a big brassy sound from the UK's longest established Jazz Band The Merseysippi Jazz Band is the UK's longest established Traditional Jazz Band. They played their first gig in 1949 and are still going strong. They made their first broadcast for the BBC in 1952 and their first commercial recording in 1954. Their other claim to fame was opening the famous Cavern Club in Liverpool in 1957 where they held a residency for two years. A Skiffle group named The Quarrymen led by one John Lennon also made its debut at The Cavern and eventually ousted the Trad bands the rest is history. This CD is mainly compiled from the archives of the legendary British independent Jazz label, Esquire, but starts with the Merseys 'live' at the Royal Festival Hall in 1955 with Beryl Bryden as quest. The other guest on the album is the ever popular, Clinton Ford. It's easy to see why the band was popular they made more records for Esquire than any other Trad band with their brand of good foot-stompin' Trad and the big brassy sound of the two trumpet front-line.
