3.0 out of 5 stars Good simple starter advice only., 23 Mar 2014

Simple advice but was too short to be of much use to a beginner growing this difficult species which are rarely covered in other orchid growing books.

This review is from: Live East Coast Encores (Audio CD)
Excellent music played by equally dedicated musicians lead by the giant of progressive big band music Stanley Newton Kenton. Forget whether it swings or not this is music from the leaders heart. Top class audio for the time it was recorded.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful memories, 2 Dec 2011
This review is from: Their Last Time Out (Audio CD)
What a loss to modern small group jazz when Dave decided time had come to move in other directions.
The music sounds as fresh today as it did during the years leading up to this long forgotten recording.
Dave may not have pleased some jazz fans but he certainly was approved of by the wider public.
His music continues to be used for 'commercials' of the present time. There could be no greater complement. Four top grade musicians playing at the peak of their ability almost as one.
There maybe some imperfections in this recording but this does not detract from the music which could have been lost but for a visit to Dave by the records' producer, Russell Gloyd, just over 2 years ago. What a chance find !!! Recorded almost 44 years ago you could well believe you were actually at the concert as it sounds right up to date.
Over 90 mins of quality playing with superb informative booklet, surely a bargain.
No serious appreciator of modern jazz should be without this historic recording.

5.0 out of 5 stars From Miller to Lawrence to Dean, 2 Dec 2011
This review is from: A Night at the Movies (Audio CD)
For the past 15 years Chris and the band have continued to evolve the style of music which the late Syd Lawrence began soon after leaving the excellent Manchester based BBC band, the NDO.
Here there are fresh interpretations of standard BB tunes and new ones specially written for the band. Excellent instrumental solos and songs. This music would have made Glenn Miller note its excellence.
All involved certainly give the impression of enjoying to build on and improve the music of the past. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Almost budget priced but certainly not budget music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Epsom SX400 printer, 31 Aug 2009
Good product but not as sturdy as my old Epsom CX3200. Great B/W prints and completely satisfactory colour ones.
Much noisier and also not keen on the angle of the scanning plate.
