The Incomparable HENRY RED ALLEN Volume 2
Following on from the success of the first album in this series of Upbeat Jazz’s four eminently collectable CDs, volume 2 is now available with volumes 3 and 4 following later this year. Volume 1 was very well received by the critics and has had airplay (half the show) on Walter Love’s programme on BBC Radio Ulster on 7th March.
Henry Red Allen was also the subject of BBC Radio 3’s six programmes in the year 2000 called Ride, Red, Ride presented by Mike Pointon who has compiled this series of CDs. These CDs forms a significant part of jazz history with wonderful music from wonderful musicians. Excellent sound quality.
