World's Greatest Jazz Band - At Manchester's Free Trade Hall, England 1971 album download
Whether any band can actually live up to such a title is questionable, but At Manchester's Free Trade Hall, England 1971 does qualify as a fine recording of a vivacious live show. This rather large band (nine players), including trumpeters Yank Lawson and Billy Butterfield, and pianist Ralph Sutton, turns back the clock to a jazz form - Dixieland - that hadn't been "in" since the 1910s.
The World's Greatest Jazz Band was an all-star jazz ensemble active from 1968 to 1978.
Recorded in concert on December 15, 1971 in Manchester, England.
Popular albums by this artist. Plays George Gershwin. In Concert at Carnegie Hall, Vol. 2. Way Out West. Dick Gibson founded the group at his sixth Jazz Party, an annual event. The group performed mostly Dixieland jazz and recorded extensively. It was co-led by Yank Lawson and Bob Haggart, and did early jazz standards alongside contemporaneous pop songs done in a Dixieland style.
