Northern Edition CD Compilation.

I suppose this is what we used to call a "Sampler". Well, this is a very much updated sampler. Not only do we have 12 bands from the Edition label's roster we also have them delightfully curated by Fiona Talkington. Of the bands, few mean much to me apart from Phronesis and Dave Stapleton who was also executive producer.
Nevertheless, it's all here so you can judge for yourself - a bit like a jazz X Factor!
Listen.

Interesting - the "listen" link leads to an album with 24 tracks (apparently). Only the first 13 are listed in Spotify and each consists of a short (< 1 minute) soundbite about the track from Fiona Talkington (talking). No music - perhaps tomorrow, eh?

Strange, it works for me, 12 tracks and 12 introductions are what the 24 comprise of. For some reason you've only got the introductions

Hugh said...

Yep, found it thanks, Lance. I had to click another disc icon underneath the 12 (not 13!)track listings of Fiona Talkington's introductions. Interesting...
... not sure I'll be buying the disc though.

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.
