  • Description

    This release sees the 10th and final volume in the AT A TANGENT series. When compiling the POTTED HISTORY OF BRITISH TRADITIONAL JAZZ (LAKE LACD300) triple album, it became apparent that there were various stories within the stories and the previous TANGENT series attempted to tell the stories of Classic style, Dixieland/Chicago, Mainstream, New Orleans style, Territory bands etc, etc. This final set is a round-up with examples of all the aforementioned. The series tried, as far as possible, to avoid the 'big names' of Traditional Jazz, but this volume does include tracks by Ball, Barber and Bilk plus Alex Welsh and Terry Lightfoot. Its subtitle is 'Rarities & Hidden Gems' because 18 of the 23 tracks are previously unreleased and those that have been released were mostly on small, obscure labels. It makes an enjoyable, informative and fitting end to the series.
