Ember Jazz: The Flamingo Connection

by Modculture 29 September, 2009


We don't feature much jazz on these pages, but Ember Jazz: The Flamingo Connection is worth a mention.

Essentially it's an overview of the late 50s, early 60s club jazz sound of the Flamingo, with tracks pulled from the archives of Jeffrey Kruger's Ember label. An impressive 36 tracks over the two CDs, with acts including Tubby Hayes, Ronnie Scott, Annie Ross, Tony Kinsey, Bill LeSage, Carmen McRae, Don Rendell and Tony Crombie.

Pretty cheap too at £8.79.
