Stan's War Requiem,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Flying Pig (Audio CD)
Sooo good! A wonderful parting gift from Stan to jazz fans everywhere. Since his sad departure in December, sad is sadly missed by most jazz fans in the Uk. This album, his last recording is up there amongst his best. He made many "concept" albums over the years, most of the good but the musical connection with the subject matter was often tenuou. However this alum is clearly one from the heart and ranks along side his classic Undermilk Wood. The listener cannot fail to hear the sounds and experiences and even the human of The Tommies in the trenches. you can even feel the humour.
Its a must for Tracey fans but is worth a purchase for anyone with an ear for modern British jazz. He wasn't called the Godfather for nothing.
