CD REVIEW by George Giles

*********************************************************

Jazzin’ At The Mardi Gras is Dart Valley Stompers fifth C.D. issued during their Fifth anniversary year. I think that it is their best C. D. so far and, once word gets out about how good it is, it won’t be long before it’s sold out. After five years together, Dart Valley Stompers are getting better all the time, if that’s possible, and this latest C.D certainly proves the point.

Of the fourteen tracks, all but one (Love Nest) are familiar standards and are, as usual played with great enthusiasm and class. Six of the tracks feature the vocal styles of Jeremy Huggett and Ron Milford.

This is another great C.D. featuring the usual top class ensemble playing and solo renditions from the opening number, “Salutation March”, the opening bars of which really are reminiscent of a marching band, through to the end of “Fidgety Feet”.

Excellently recorded and presented with cover artwork that is superbly matched to the title. Jazzin’ At The Mardi Gras is thoroughly recommended as a must buy and is available at all the bands sessions or can be ordered from Maria Huggett by phoning her on 01884 35563.

JUST JAZZ MAGAZINE CD REVIEW, August 2010

JAZZIN' AT THE MARDI GRAS CD - DART VALLEY STOMPERS

Own Label: No number

Recorded at Coast View Jazz Week, Shaldon Teignmouth, Devon 22 April, 2010.

Salutation March;, Indiana, Margie, Love Nest, Canal Street Blues, Running Wiuld; After You’ve Gone; St. Louis Blues; Bye Bye Blues; Just A Little While to Stay Here; Hiawatha Rag; Moose March; Louisian-i-a; Fidgety Feet

Jeremy Huggett (Clarinet, Tenor Sax, Vocals)
Graham Trevarton (Cornet, Trumpet)
Ron Milford (trombone, vocals)
John Whitlock (banjo, guitar)
Tony Mann (bass, tuba)
Ron Berry (drums)


This latest CD from one of the country's newest recruits to the jazz club circuit is another success for this increasingly popular band. The repertoire content is pretty standard, except for Salutation March and Love Nest, but that seems to be of no problem to the audience at Coast View, where the band recorded this CD. Their enthusiasm for the band is genuinely expressed by their applause. The fans will rush to buy this latest product, but it will not be available from the mail order brigade: to purchase you need to contact Jeremy Huggett on 01884 35563.

I’m sure a lot of Just Jazz readers would enjoy listening to the CD.

Jeremy Huggett - Clarinet, Saxes & Vocals*; Graham Trevarton - Cornet, Trumpet & Vocals**; Ron Milford - Trombone & Vocals***; Ron Berry - Drums; John Whitlock - Banjo & Guitar; Tony Mann - Bass & Tuba.

*********************************************************

This is The Dart Valley Stompers second C.D. recorded almost exactly a year after their formation and what a tremendous birthday present they have prepared for their, now legion of, fans throughout the South West and beyond.

Again the tunes selected and, more importantly the interpretation and presentation of those tunes, is confirmation that the band do produce the genre of Jazz to match their objective to play top class New Orleans and Traditional Jazz.

There are twelve tracks on this C.D. each one an entertaining foot tapping experience with many excellent solo instrumental and vocal renditions throughout. Also, not surprisingly, the ensemble playing is superb.

I thoroughly enjoyed this C.D. with, as far as I'm concerned, twelve tracks that defy me to pick out a favourite, they're all great.

A very impressive second C.D. from a band that is becoming very popular and busy, don't miss an opportunity to see them live. If you're not able to see the band then listen to them on this excellent C.D. Minnie The Mermaid that is recommended as a good buy, especially if you like happy foot tapping entertaining Jazz. Telephone 01884 35563 to order a copy.
