Big Band Bash - Ted Heath And His Music
Ted Heath And His Music
Phase 4 Stereo
London Sp 44017
Available on CD, so I will not be posting a sample. This is a great Heath space age album. This recording sounds very much like a Command project. There's some ping-pong going on, the music has that touch of that early 60s "light pop" humor and the stereo engineering is as good as the excellent sound you are treated to on most Enoch Light projects.
Heath's cover of Harlem Nocturne, the second track on side 2, is very cool. This is an inventive and enjoyable record.
