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.
