CD review: The Jelly Roll Jazz Band - Whose Solo is it Anyway?


Dan Wackett (bjo); Michael Grant (clt/spoons); Laurence Marshall (tpt/tmb/vcl); Ben Sarney (bs).
(Review by Lance).
The sleeve says that the Jelly Roll Jazz Band [above names] are listed in reverse alphabetical order according to the penultimate letter of their surname. This gave me the idea that this isn't a disc to be taken too seriously!
It's a fun band! And if you're having a Prohibition Party, this is the band for you.
Lots of tried and tested favourites such as When the Saints; Bourbon St. Parade; Five Foot Two; Sheik of Araby; Just a Closer Walk With Thee; St. James Infirmary; Margie;  Moon River; Bare Necessities; Ice Cream; When You're Smiling; 14 seconds of In the Mood and an unlisted blast on Bill Bailey. Nowhere else will you hear such heart-rending interpretations of the core banjo repertoire , say's the press release. A fair description.
Got to be the best party band in Scarborough which is where they are hiding out from the Jazz Police. Visit them on Facebook.

Submissions for review

Whilst we appreciate the many emails, texts, messages and other communications we receive requesting album/gig reviews on BSH, regrettably, we are unable to reply to them all other than those we are able to answer with a positive response.
Similarly, CDs received by post will only be considered if accompanied by sufficient background material.
Finally, bear in mind that this is a jazz-based site when submitting your album.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
