• BLUE ROOM SEVEN

    £15

    When the Swing Era came to an end after WW2, many of the big bands were reduced in size to smaller units for various reasons. This added to the change of jazz styles through fresh ideas from younger players, and gave rise to more improvisation, and eventualy to Bebop and Cool. The BLUE ROOM SEVEN aims to emulate the best of this important mix whilst still keeping to a swing genre. The arrangements are new, but reflect the best of what should be kept alive from a wonderful jazz period.
