Description

Previously unreleased live session recorded at Ronnie Scott's in 1990 by Loose Tubes, the innovative big band that brought together many of the leading young jazz musicians of the day.

With over 20 members, Loose Tubes was one of the biggest of big bands and it drew on a considerable pool of writing as well as playing talent: particularly from Django Bates, Eddie Parker, Steve Berry and Chris Batchelor. Its m\usic was an exotic blend of jazz, rock and sundry world musics plus a substantial dash of British humour.

Founded in 1984 the group was a great concert draw and it released 3 albums, including one produced by Teo Macero, the producer of many of Miles Davis's classic albums. None of these albums have been available for many years so this CD of previously unreleased material will be welcomed by Loose Tubes' many thousands of fans.

Personnel: Eddie Parker (flutes), Dai Pritchard (clarinets), Steve Buckley, Iain Ballamy, Mark Lockheart, Julian Nicholas, Ken Stubbs (saxophones), Lance Kelly, Chris Batchelor, Ted Emmett, Paul Edmonds, Noel Langley (trumpets), John Harborne, Steve Day, Paul Taylor, Richard Pywell, Ashley Slater (trombones), Dave Powell (tuba), Django Bates (keyboards), John Parricelli (guitar), Steve Watts (bass), Martin France (drums), Thebi Lipere (percussion)
