John Burgess Plays Eddie Condon

John Burgess Plays Eddie Condon image

Burgess is the leading player in the renaissance of swinging jazz in Scotland.A tenor saxophone player with a beautiful sound; and a clarinetist who can purr and excite in equal measure. Today, we are introduced to an all star band, featuring New York musicians who play in the closest style to the easygoing informal swinging jazz made famous at Condon's Manhattan club, and are transported to an era in which swing was still king, and mainstream jazz was born.
