Jack Parnell: Two Classic Albums Plus Two Ep’s (Trip To Mars / Jack Parnell Selection / Parnell On Parade / Kick Off!) (2CD)

Ref: AMSC1016

(UK Postage Free )


AVID Jazz here presents two classic Jack Parnell albums plus two classic E.P’s plus 27 additional recordings including the complete recorded output of
The Vic Lewis and Jack Parnell Jazzmen and previously unissued recordings of Kenny Bakers Swing Group featuring Jack Parnell. Including original
LP and E.P. liner notes on a finely re-mastered and low priced double CD.
To coin a phrase from one of the featured E.P’s in our new release, we certainly do have a parade of Parnells for your entertainment! On “Trip to Mars”
Jack is joined by some of the finest musicians in the country including Ronnie Scott, Kenny Graham, trumpeter Jimmy Deuchar, Harry Klein, Sammy
Stokes and Phil Seaman on hand as second drummer when Jack takes over vocal or conducting duties! You will also hear the famous drum duets
between Jack and Phil on “The Champ” and “Skin Deep”! On “Parnell on Parade” we can hear Jack really going at his kit on all four tracks backed by a
tremendously hard hitting band including Don Honeywell on baritone sax. The E.P features two standards and two “Eastern” style numbers all
performed in the inimitable Parnell style. On “Kick Off” Jack makes a rather telling quote on the original liner notes…… “To my mind, if you don’t
have a good drummer you don’t have a good band! It’s the drummer who knits the band together”. Well you can hear some mighty fine knitting on the
four tracks featured on this E.P where Jack is joined by such British jazzmen as Laddy Busby, Bob Burns, Max Harris, Joe Temperley, Ronnie Simonds
and Kenny Napper. On hand once again to join Jack on another stunning drum duet “Kick Off” is the amazing Phil Seamen! So this is the AVID tribute
to a late great and perhaps under-rated jazzman who may have been better known to the wider public for his light entertainment roles, but really at heart
was a true jazz man!
Jack Parnell we salute you!
