Al Bowlly – The Complete Lew Stone Sessions Volume 6, MLMCD066

MLMCD066

By An Old Pagoda; Mama, I Wanna Make Rhythm*; In Santa Margherita; Ti-Pi-Tin; Down And Out Blues; Little Lady Make-Believe*; I’m Sorry I Didn't Say I'm Sorry; You Couldn't Be Cuter; Just Let Me Look At You; The Red Maple Leaves,; Music, Maestro, Please; I Won't Tell A Soul; Say Goodnight To Your Old-Fashioned Mother; Now It Can Be Told; On The Sentimental Side; Everyone Must Have A Sweetheart*; The Frog On The Water-Lily; All Ashore; Penny Serenade; Any Broken Hearts To Mend?; Georgia's Gotta Moon.

 * two takes included of the asterisked titles.

 And so we come tom the final CD of the Al Bowlly – Lew Stone Story with the band’s remaining 1938 recordings.  And a terrific set this is too contrasting upbeat Mama I Wanna Make Rhythm (where Al’s scat singing is superb)  to the sentimental I Won't Tell A Soul which Al sings with great feeling. Listening to all six of this set of CDs, I have no hesitation in saying that the Bowlly - Stone  partnership was one of the best musical combinations of the era.

This CD will be released on 8th August, but you may order it now.

Four Bright Sparks, MLMCD067

MLMCD067

My Heart is Saying; Loveable and Sweet; The Thought Never Entered My Head; She’s Such a Comfort to Me; ‘T Ain’t no Sin; Ev’ry Day Away from You; Duke of Ka-Ki-Ak; Miss Wonderful; Body and Soul; I’ll Be Getting Along; High Society Blues; In the Still of the Night; Moanin’ for You; I’m on my Way to Heaven; You Gotta be Modernistic; Can I Help It;  Follow a Star; Let’s Go Native; He’s My Secret Passion; Melody in Spring; Give me Liberty or Give Me Love; She Reminds me of You; True; Nasty Man.

 

One could describe The Four Bright Sparks as a small jazz band; possibly as a novelty combo or maybe a small dance band. But either way, they consisted of a group of fine musicians among them (on various sessions) Arthur Young, piano, Rudy Starita, xylophone, Harry Karr, saxophone and clarinet, Harry Sherman and Len Fillis, Banjo and guitar, Eric Siday and Jean Pougnet (violin), Ted Heath  and Tony Thorpe (trombone). The vocalists on this CD are Billy Milton, Sam Browne, Lou Abelardo, Jack Plant, Harry Bentley, Queenie Leonard and Helen Howard. So first class musicians, first class singers and with Columbia recordings, a first class sound.

This CD will be released on 8th August, but you may order it now.
