Remembering Ben Cohen


This is the first release in Lake's new LIMITED EDITION series. These are CDs of music or musicians which are not expected to be volume sales, but which deserve to be heard. They will appeal to collectors and completists rather than general buyers. This first CD is dedicated to cornet player Ben Cohen. He came to public attention when he joined Chris Barber's New Orleans Jazz Band in 1950. This was essentially an amateur band it made a number of records. From 1950 until his death in 2002 Ben Cohen became highly regarded as a fiery 'hot' player in the early Louis Armstrong mould. He played in the bands of Alex Revell, Cy Laurie, Ian Bell, The Temperance Seven, Mike Daniels and many others. Keith Nichols used him on his recreations of 1920s bands. Ben Cohen recorded for LAKE as a member of the Sonny Dee All Stars and Laurie Chescoe's Goodtime Jazz. This CD sees him with Brian White's Magna Jazz Band on previously unreleased tracks from 1979, 1984 and 1987. It is good, swinging jazz in the Chicago style and shows why Ben Cohen was so well regarded by musicians and jazz fans alike.
