Format: Audio CD
This CD is dedicated to three famous American musicians who preferred the political and musical environment of Europe to that of the States. Eyeopener will probably have been the sessions two of them, Coleman Hawkins and Benny Carter, had taken part in in 1933, organised by British bassist and arranger Spike Hughes. His enthusiasm was clearly indicative of the fact that jazz was seen as an art form in Europe, rather than as a crude form of entertainment as most Americans still viewed it. Also, the experiences of a Louis Armstrong and a Duke Ellington in that respect will have been instrumental in Both Hawkins and Carter leaving for Europe, where they were welcomed with open arms (except of course in Germany). Hawkins was featured with one of Europe's leading orchestras (that of Jack Hylton), Carter was employed by another paragon of the British music scene, Henry Hall and the venerable BBC Dance Orchestra. The musical climate in Holland was, if anything, even more jazz oriented. The small county by the Zuyderzee sported a number of excellent jazz based dance orchestras (Eddy Meenk's Decibels (which later became the AVRO Dance Orchestra), Melle Weersma's Red, White and Blue Aces, Jack and Louis de Vries' Internationals and first and foremost Theo Uden Masman's Ramblers). After Hylton and Hawkins had performed in Amsterdam Hawkins stayed behind in Holland (Hylton toured Germany) and he wasted no time in recording a number of lovely items with the Ramblers for Panachord (Dutch Decca). The arrangements were stocks, adapted by the able Ramblers' arranger Jack Bulterman.Read more ›

After Hylton and Hawkins had performed in Amsterdam Hawkins stayed behind in Holland (Hylton toured Germany) and he wasted no time in recording a number of lovely items with the Ramblers for Panachord (Dutch Decca). The arrangements were stocks, adapted by the able Ramblers' arranger Jack Bulterman. The Rambler's employed an inexperienced and understandably nervous 15 year old girl singer, Annie de Reuver, who wasn't really very good (she carved out a nice career for herself after the war and is, at the time of writing, still very much alive and kicking). Compared to American bands the Ramblers may not have been the epitome of swing, but when compared to many English and certainly continental bands, they managed very capably and the results are never less than pleasing. Hawkins' contributions are of course the high point of the proceedings, his rhapsodic balladeering, his gorgeous tone and his improvisatory skills on the faster titles are virtually nonpareil (the Ramblers' bandsmen were almost overawed by Hawkins' presence and even the normally acerbic drummer Kees Kranenburg had nothing but praise). The second session yielded the classic Bulterman composition/arrangement Meditation which is one of the loveliest tunes to have come from the mid thirties. Hawkins' beautiful solo is preceded by a well crafted muted trumpet solo by George van Helvoirt, with a sympathetic melody statement by trombonist Marcel Thielemans (who was with the band from 1933 to 1998 (!)). A third session followed two years later. Hawkins and the Ramblers recorded 14 titles together. Benny Carter came to Europe with Willie Lewis' band in 1935 and in 1937 went to Holland where he led an international band (including trombonist George Chisholm) and, with the Ramblers, recorded four titles as a quadruple threat: arranger, trumpeter, clarinetist and altoist. The sax specials are immediately recognizable as his work, as is his distinctive sound on the alto. The 19 orchestral sides are complemented by Hawkins' solo recordings, accompanied by The Ramblers' rhythm section and on two titles by Ramblers' relief pianist and fellow American Freddy Johnson (who continued to record with The Ramblers, Lex van Spall and played in Amsterdam well into WWII. Only after the American had been pitchforked into the war, was he interned by the Germans).
Sound quality of the original records is outstanding (the Dutch Deccas were of superior quality); these unissued takes have slightly more surface noise, but audio restauration has been in the hands of the more than capable Harry Coster, so no problem there. The music gives a very good picture of mid thirties' hot music in Europe. A very good issue!
