The second of six mid-'90s CDs from the English Upbeat label continues the release of valuable trad jazz band performances taken from the BBC Jazz Club radio series. Clarinetist Sandy Brown's Jazz Band is in top form on five numbers, with trumpeter Al Fairweather and guitarist Diz Disley coming across particularly well. However, the reason to acquire this disc (one of the most rewarding of the six in the series) is for the 15 selections by trumpeter Humphrey Lyttelton's exciting band. Recorded shortly before Lyttelton changed his focus to swing-oriented mainstream, these numbers feature clarinetist Wally Fawkes, trombonist John Picard, and altoist Bruce Turner in the octet and look both back at the 1920s and toward the New Orleans revival movement. Lyttelton is in splendid form, the ensembles are exciting, and nine of the songs (eight by the leader) are originals. Highly recommended. ~ Scott Yanow
