Going back to the Fifties, a unique and very (POP)ular
band that turned orchestral "Pop" on it's head with
stunning arrangements and instrumentation.
The Doodletown Fifers
Re-issued in the 1970's

This is not Jazz as such but the instrumentation
and arrangements of classic tunes do tend to favour
some Jazz structures.
I put this album in the same category as the Arthur Lyman "Taboo" I did a few months ago, special Hi-Fi demo's to exercise your ears.
You will undoubtedly recognise some of the tunes as they are often played on the radio
Midnight Sleighride and April in Paris and of course Doodletown races based on the classic Camptown races, (doo dah, doo dah).It's been FUN and a refreshing change.
