A completion of the reissue programme of a popular Trad band of the 1950s including tracks by singer Clinton Ford This is the second volume of recordings and complete the reissue of their 1950s output. The Merseysippi Jazz Band is the UKs 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. The guest on the album is the ever popular, Clinton Ford. The last 6 tracks come from the Oriole, a major label which had just signed Clinton. He was to get into the charts soon after, but not backed by the Merseys. Its 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.
