HISTORY
r|^HE Band “played itself in’
for three months last
October at the Düsseldorf
Bier Bar, and made its debut
at Jazzshows earlier this year.
For a ‘young’ band, its date
book is exceptionally full,
with jazz club dates in all
parts of the country. Eric
•would rather play jazz clubs,
but hopes to get concert ex-
perience as soon as the band
is ready. The band hopes
shortly to record for Record
Supervision.
To play, ultimately, a repe-
toire of originals, and to give
new arrangements of the ac-
cepted standards. The band in-
tends to make exciting New Or-
leans music with freedom for
each man to play his own style
within the N O. framework.
PERSONNEL
ERIC ALLAN DALE (trom-
bone/leader was born 25
years ago in Dominica, West
Indies. He came to England
seven years ago, playing trum-
pet (straight) with the Hammer-
smith Borough Brass Band. A
splinter group formed itself to
play traditional jazz and, as a
trumpet player got in there
first; Eric took up the trombone
in self defence. Five years ago
the band became his. Eric then
left to join Teddy Layton and
Sonny Morris in 1958, for two
years. As he ‘feels like a leader’
he put a new band together for
himself. His favourites are
strictly traditional, the Armst-
rong All Stars, Lou McGarity,
the blues singers like Bessie
Smith, Ray Charles, and gospel
music. His hobby is photog-
raphing people. His own per-
sonal aim for the band is to
ke«p it together as it stands for
as long as possible.
WILL HAST1E (clarinet)
was born in Edinburgh thirty
four years ago. and gained his
experience in local bands. He’s
been in Town the past seven
years, and got his first big
break with Freddie Randall,
though his experience includes
most of the Trad bands on the
scene. He likes Johnny Dodds
and sampling oriental food. He
is responsible for the bands ar-
rangements, loosely sketched
and threshed out in rehearsal,
and his big musical ambition
is to write original numbers in
traditional style.
GEOFF BROWN (trumpet)
is twenty and was born in Put-
ney. He led his own semi-pro
group in South East England
for two years and came to
Eric from this venture. He
likes Louis, and Ruby Braff
and among his many hobbies
is record collecting. He, the
man says, is aiming to be a
wit.
JIM GOUDIE (bass) was
born in Edinburgh and is now
twenty seven. He came to Lon-
don six years ago apd played
with Colin Smith, moving from
Teddy Layton to Eric Allan-
dale. Ray Brown is his fav-
ourite bass player, and as a
pastime you’ll find him read-
ing science fiction. He has
many ambitions, amongst
which, perhaps, is the sort-
ing out of a bass he’s satisfied
with.
EDDIE EDWARDS (banjo)
was born in Chiswick in 1939,
and worked with many semi-
pro groups including that of
Neil Millett, which he left to
join this band. He, is reputed
to want to be a racing driver.
He admires early Donegan and
the sound of the Morton Red
Hot Peppers.
LAURIE CHESCOE (drums)
was born in Clapham twenty
nine years ago. He first played
with the Guys Hospital band
when he was a lab. techni-
cian, later with Colin Smith,
Teddy Layton and Sonny Mor-
ris. Hobby? Bird-watching, and
he wants to be a jazz critic.
