Product Notes

Cornetist Digby Fairweather has become one of the leading figures on the British jazz scene, both as a bandleader and sideman in other leader's bands, and as a writer and broadcaster, as well as being the founder and director of the charity Jazz Centre UK in Southend, aimed at promoting, preserving and celebrating the culture of jazz. This 35-track-2-CD set is the 2nd volume of a retrospective of his career to date, compiled by Digby himself, and with substantial booklet notes written by him. It comprises recordings from across his career from 1979 through to 2018, and features recordings with a host of the top names in British jazz, including several by bands he has led under the names of Digby's Half Dozen and Digby's Fairweather Friends. Among the artists with whom Digby performs in this set are Tony Compton, Stan Barker, John Barnes, Martin Litton, Roy Williams, Denny Wright, Ike Isaacs, Len Skeat, Brian Lemon, Stan Bourke and more. It's the second part of a musical overview of a significant career selected by the artist himself, and providing not only a showcase for his talents, but an entertaining insight into the British jazz scene across four decades
