DAVE RANCE and RICHARD LEACH - Together Again - 50 Years On
Trumpeter Dave Rance and trombonist Richard Leach met in 1967 and very soon formed their first band together. After a few years they began to follow separate paths although they never lost touch and for the next five decades their jazz careers were loosely entwined. In July 2017 they got together for a one-off club session to mark their fifty year friendship and this CD is the result. Dave, Richard, all the band and everyone present had a ball that evening there are moments on the CD when you can hear Dave and Richard egging each other on it was great fun!
The band line-up, (Dave Rance's Rockin' Chair Band) is Dave Rance trumpet, flugelhorn Richard Leach trombone Derek Scofield clarinet saxes Doug Parry banjo and guitar Miike Brewerton double bass Henri Harrison drums.
