Stan Tracey returns to Dylan Thomas for inspiration in the present suite, based upon "A Child's Christmas in Wales". Hearing this I was instantly transported back to the English Literature classes at college where we studied this work.

The music, as with "Under Milk Wood", fits in nicely with the story, the quartet excel themselves, and the recording is excellent. The narration which is placed between each section (spoken by Ben Tracey) is an additional delight.

All that remains for me to say is - if you liked "Under Milk Wood", you'll love this. Thanks very much to Stan and all involved in the recording.

Dazzling, entrancing and compelling album composed by the late Stan Tracey whose solar, unique and dashing sipirit continues to shine upon us through his work. The band's playing is of course absolutely brillant and Ben Tracey's impeccable naration conveys emotions that are both heartfelt and delicate. This is an album I will not tired to listen to.

This is one of my favourite CDs! The jazz is great music and the story is beautifully read as well.

I just don't know how Stan Manages it. Such quality and a realy great CD. He seems to improve with age (excuse the pun!) I have listened to Stan now for almost 55 years and his energy is still there backed by the excellent Simon Allen on Tenor, Andy Cleyndert on Bass and Clark Tracey on drums. Such fond memories of 'Under Milk Wood' Stan has come up trumps with yet another Dylan masterpiece and supportive narration by Ben Tracey. Long may he continue as one of the surviving masters of British Jazz that came from one of the eras that produced some of the best players! A MUST FOR ANY JAZZ RECORD COLLECTION.

I feel honoured to have seen this gig live in Halifax yesterday. Arranged by Stan Tracey ... Almost 86 years old now! The music is amazing, and Ben, the young man in the family pulls you into the magic as soon as he speaks. I wonder if he is a fan of Roald Dahl? This really is something special.
