Some think that British trad has kept the jazz audience in the dark ages: they should try listening to the American model, which is more about a joyful, shouting celebration of the music as it stood 60 or 70 years ago. The Stomp Off label has curated this style for many years, and it’s rare to find any kind of dud among its releases.
TERRY WALDO’S JAZZ ENTERTAINERS have no intention of letting the side down, and their rambunctious charge through 22 tunes – including ‘Let’s Sow a Wild Oat’, ‘Sax-O-Phun’ and a positively bodacious ‘Happy Feet’ – is an unpretentious delight.
