Description

Legendary British trumpeter Humphrey Lyttelton powered out of the 1940s as Britain's leading traditional Jazz band. Lyttelton had secured a recording contract with the major Parlophone label. At that stage his only serious rival was Freddy Randall who also joined the Parlophone ranks in 1951. Lyttelton's band was stylistically evolving, but Randall chose to base his band in the Chicago style of Eddie Condon, Wild Bill Davison and their cohorts. It was driving, foot-stomping stuff led by Randall's fiery trumpet playing. For seven years the band recorded some excellent tracks for Parlophone and they are restored and presented here. Noted Jazz critic, Digby Fairweather wrote "[Randall's] records of the 1950s period .are great Jazz in any language".
