Trumpeter Henry Lowther is featured in this Sunday’s Jazz Line-Up (September 4th.) It’s a session recorded last month at Maida Vale of two bands, Still Waters and the Great Wee Band, plus Julian Joseph interviewing Henry about his distinguished career. More details from the Jazz Line Up website.
I attended the recording, and am waiting to hear the Great Wee Band’s slow “Nica’s Dream.” Was it really the perfect take I remember?
That track is on the Great Wee Band’s first CD, The Sound of Music (Trio Records). Peter Vacher singled it out for special prise on the 2010 Jazz Library Albums of the Year show . And I’m hearing that supplies of the CD are starting to dwindle.
The band has recorded a second CD, entitled Light Blue, release forthcoming. This week’s LondonJazz prize draw is for a fan with patience. Put your name in the hat to be among the first to get the new album when released.
