517 pages of News, views and music as at Saturday November 08, 2014


Welcome to my world of Traditional Jazz. The pages which follow are a tribute to the musicians who have dedicated themselves to playing the music of New Orleans and Dixieland in the North West of the British Isles. Although I try very hard to ensure all the information about the bands and events are correct, please check with the venues concerned before setting out on your journey.  - Fred Burnett.

The Original Panama Jazz Band are celebrating their 60th Anniversary this year, and band leader Jon Critchley has compiled an account of the band's history, which appeared in Just Jazz magazine, and now appears on this site.  To go with it, a new CD has been issued which consists mainly of a re-issue of a tape recorded in 1992 but for the anniversary it includes four tracks that the the band did for an EP in 1970 (Hence 'the bit on the side'), and were the first recordings made by The Original Panama Jazzband. You can order the CD from: http://tinyurl.com/kyg66pg  ( UK = 11.90 plus p&p; elsewhere 12.90 plus p&p) or at any of the band gigs at a discounted rate of 9.
