Boomkat Product Review:
Death is Not the End follow up their fab collection of London jazz with another well-researched collection of sounds, featuring tracks from Tubby Hayes, Ronnie Scott's Quintet, Dizzy Reece Quintet and more.
Made in partnership with the Barbican as part of their exhibition of postwar art between 1945 and 1965, "I Had the Craziest Dream: Modern Jazz and Hard-Bop in Post War London Vol.2" yet again shines a spotlight on jazz in London and its influx of players from the Caribbean and across Africa.
There are some important names featured here, from English modern jazz sax player Tubby Hayes and notorious bandleader and club owner Ronnie Scott to Jamaican-born tenor saxophonist Wilton Gaynair and Jamaican-born hard bop trumpeter Dizzy Reese. The compilation extends the world mapped out by its predecessor, and while it features plenty of the same names, it helps to illustrate a time period that's often lost in the ether. Post war London was a melting pot of sounds that ended up inspiring decades of innovative music - none of that would have been possible without these early pioneers.
