5.0 out of 5 stars six for six, 7 Dec. 2013
This review is from: Six For Six (Audio CD)
What an outstanding album this is of Wheeler compositions played by a world class group of musicians. ( I had the pleasure of hearing the almost identical group at the Vortex in London ).

The compositions are beautiful and very characteristic of Kenny's writing. Many are included in the later Big Band album ' The Long Waiting '

Both albums are outstanding and superbly recorded. I would recommend both without hesitation. Thank you so much Kenny .

2.0 out of 5 stars Bomber Boys. DVD ( Mc Gregor ), 16 Aug. 2012
This review is from: Bomber Boys [2012] [DVD] (DVD)
This is a third rate documentary which is as much about the band of McGregor brothers as it is about Bomber Command and all those who served and died as members . It reveals little if anything of the planning , briefing and daily operations necessary for a successful bombing mission , nor anything about post mission debriefing .( It would appear that the authors have only a superficial knowledge of Bomber Command activities during WW II , and have done little in the way of research to overcome this ). They even take the time to examine precision bombing activities carried out in Afghanistan 70 years later , which seems to me to be quite pointless, even in comparison . The only worthwhile commentary comes from the few survivors who were interviewed for this documentary. Not recommended . Derek Collins , Niagara On The Lake , Canada .

1.0 out of 5 stars Tubby Hayes Boppin and Hoppin, 5 Jun. 2011
This review is from: Boppin' And Hoppin' (Audio CD)
What a waste of money . This CD should carry a warning label concerning the content . Almost the entire album consists of a selection of 12 bar blues with little compositional content and boring rock drumming (at the primary level of Ringo Starr) by Tony Crombie . Even the great talented Tubby Hayes and Simon Spillett's interesting and extensive liner notes cannot help this one . A great disapointment for me as an admirer of both Tubby Hayes and Tony Crombie .
