JEFF BARNHART and SPATS LANGHAM - We Wish We Were Twins

CD / Product Number: LACD342

Aside from reissue albums Jeff Barnhart and Spats Langham have appeared on more LAKE CDs than any other artists, but they have never before appeared on the same ones. Over the years that Jeff has been coming to the UK he and Spats have performed together in bands, in quartets and as a duo. They have a mutual admiration for each other's work so it seemed high time to put them together. The result was a superb, relaxed, good humoured recording session with ... [MORE]

THE JAKE LEG BAND - Everythin's Jake

CD / Product Number: LACD340

With their good humour, attention to detail and varied repertoire the JLJB have built up a considerable following in just over two years. This is their second CD for LAKE and it was their previous one (LACD330) which propelled them from obscurity to being very much in demand in both Jazz Clubs and Folk Clubs the length and breadth of the UK. Blues Rhythm magazine said that their music had a knockabout, good-time feel which just about sums it up! [MORE]

BIX OFF THE RECORD - The Bix Project Band

CD / Product Number: LACD339

Another in the Vintage Recording Project series. It was suggested that we devote a CD to the music of the Jazz legend, Bix Beiderbecke. We didn't want it to be another band rehashing Bix's 'greatest hits' so it was decided to look at tunes we know Bix played, but never recorded and some tunes current at the time which he might have played. With a number of leading exponents of Vintage Jazz congregating for the Classic Jazz Party in Whitley Bay we ... [MORE]

KEN MATHIESON'S CLASSIC JAZZ BAND - Clarinet Gumbo

CD / Product Number: LACD333

This the third CD on LAKE Records for Ken Mathieson's Classic Jazz Orchestra.
