Stan Tracey Quartet: Jazz Suite- Under Milk Wood (CD: Resteamed)
'Under Milk Wood remains one of the most distinctive records of the era, a setting of Dylan Thomas which uses spare, unadorned jazz material to somehow evoke the eccentric light of the original play.' (The Penguin Guide To Jazz)

Stan Tracey Quartet & Big Band: Wisdom In The Wings (CD: Resteamed, 2 CDs)Stan Tracey Quartet & Big Band: Wisdom In The Wings (CD: Resteamed, 2 CDs)
The first release of Stan Tracey since his death in 2013, this double CD includes two of his albums recorded in the late 1960s, both in the same four weeks. The first CD was originally titled 'Free An' One', a quartet with the late Peter King on alto and Stan's trio of Dave Green on bass and Bryan Spring on drums. The second CD was originally released as 'The Seven Ages of Man' and features Stan's big band.

These two recordings, which were deleted almost immediately on their first release fifty years ago, have since become rarities in British jazz collectors' wishlists. Now lovingly restored, we can once again appreciate the mastery of Stan Tracey's piano playing, along with his compositional, arranging and band leading skills from this pivotal period in his life, having just left his tenure as house pianist at Ronnie Scott's Club.

Stan Tracey Quartet - Free An' One: with Peter King (alto saxophone), Dave Green (double bass), Bryan Spring (drums)- Recorded September 10th 1969.

Stan Tracey Big Band - The Seven Ages of Man: with Derek Watkins, Tony Fisher, Greg Bowen, Hank Shaw (trumpet), Keith Christie, Chris Pyne, Mike Gibbs (trombone), Peter King, Dennis Walton (alto saxophone), Tony Coe (clarinet, tenor saxophone), Alan Skidmore (tenor saxophone), Ronnie Ross (baritone saxophone), Dave Green (double bass), Bryan Spring (drums), Frank Ricotti (vibraphone) - Recorded October 8th 1969.

Stan Tracey Quartet & Big Brass: From Stan, With Love (CD: Resteamed, 2 CDs)
These two albums were made in October 1967 and August 1968. The earlier one, With Love From Jazz, is the last 1960s recording by Stan Tracey's quartet with tenor saxophonist Bobby Wellins. Not quite a follow up to Under Milk Wood, it was made two years later and marked a critical change of Stan's personnel. The second album, We Love You Madly, is one of several Tracey big band sessions between May 1968 and October 1969, and as its name suggests (using the Ducal phrase addressed to audiences everywhere) it is a collection of Ellingtonian material, plus Stan's affectionate tribute in the title track. Recorded to celebrate the Duke's 70th birthday, it showcases musicians from the producer's stable - Don Rendell, Ian Carr, Acker Bilk, Joe Harriott & Tony Coe - who each have a feature from the Ellington repertoire.

Stan Tracey: Alone & Together with Mike Osborne (CD: Cadillac, 2 CDs)Stan Tracey: Alone & Together with Mike Osborne (CD: Cadillac, 2 CDs)
This double album consists of, for the first time ever on CD, the Stan Tracey solo recording Live at Wigmore Hall, made for Cadillac Records in 1974. The re-release of this set is valuable enough in itself, but added golddust comes in the shape of the additional material - the previously unreleased second half of the evening - a duo recording with alto saxist Mike Osborne. Two of the greats of the English jazz scene - in fact two of the finest jazz improvisers of theirs or any time.

This is not only highly charged, beautiful music performed by musicians at the top of their game, it's a fascinating and irreplaceable historical snapshot of the jazz scene of the time. (Harmonia Mundi)

Stan Tracey: The Later Works (CD: Resteamed, 2 CDs)
This new recording by pianist Stan Tracey, the 'Godfather of British Jazz', features two suites performed by the latest line-up of his octet As well as his regular trio, the octet includes leading UK jazz musicians Guy Barker, Mornington Lockett, Simon Allen and Mark Nightingale.

Pianist Stan Tracey, known as the 'Godfather of British Jazz', is an outstanding figure in the jazz world. His distinguished career has spanned six decades and he has had many commissions to write works for special occasions including the two for his octet on this double CD. ‘The Later Works’ features the octet’s latest line-up of his regular trio plus leading UK jazz musicians including Guy Barker, Mornington Lockett, Simon Allen and Mark Nightingale. The Hong Kong Suite (disc one) was commissioned by Christopher Patten, to mark the British handover of Hong Kong back to China in 1997 and The Amandla Suite (disc two), slightly less glamorous perhaps, was commissioned in 1993 by NALGO on its merger with other trade unions, becoming UNISON.

Stan Tracey Quartet: A Child's Christmas- Jazz Suite (CD: Resteamed)
Inspired by Dylan Thomas' short story, “A Child's Christmas in Wales”, jazz legend Stan Tracey CBE has put pen to paper for the first time in over 10 years to compose a new suite, performed by his current quartet with the addition of Stan's 21 year old grandson, Ben Tracey, as narrator.

Very much in the mould of Stan's landmark recording ‘Under Milk Wood’ from the Sixties, this was another popular story in the Tracey household at that time and ever since. “I've always had a particular fondness for A Child's Christmas in Wales because it evokes so many memories of the festival when I was a child. I was, therefore, delighted when Clark suggested that I should write something based on Dylan's story and wondered why I hadn't thought of it first. I hope the music reflects some of the pleasure it has given me.” Stan Tracey (Proper Note)

The inspiration for this album came after a visit with Clark and grandson Ben to the WW1 battlefields of Loos (pronounced 'loss') in northern France, where my father (Stanley Clark Tracey) was wounded and captured in 1915 aged 18. (Stan Tracey)
