Recorded 16 February 1958, at the Dominion Theatre, London, The Jazz Couriers’ In Concert first surfaced on the Tempo label (TAP 22). With a line-up of Ronnie Scott (tenor saxophone), Tubby Hayes (tenor saxophone, vibes), Terry Shannon (piano), Phil Bates (bass) and Bill Eyden (drums), The Jazz Couriers are in cracking form on a programme that includes Hayes’ original The Serpent, Scott’s Some Of My Best Friends Are Blues, and standards including Guys And Dolls. These downloads use the same masters prepared for our Tubby Hayes compilation Jazz Genius: The Flamingo Era (FVTD050), which was the first CD reissue to restore all original spoken introductions, working from original tapes.
