Mike Westbrook Concert Band - The Last Night At The Old Place

16 posts in this topic

and it was the last night at the Old Place !

Much of the material is also featured on the ‘Release’ LP. Although I have that LP, this CD is near the top of my ‘pending’ list.

A very happy state of affairs ! :)

What else has come out recently?  Also, what is the  best place for us in the USA to acquire this title, which I am very interested in?

The Cadillac ‘Live 1972’ reissue for starters (great, highly recommended - has much of the Solid Gold Cadillac band), the recent Lou Gare tribute, the ‘Uncommon Orchestra’ Live 2CD as well as this Ronnie’s performance. Not to forget either the 3CD ‘Marching Song’ on Turtle Records, which with its extra CD of material and authoritive sleeve notes, is the definitive issue of this landmark UK recording.

Best bet is probably Amazon UK, although you can also order CDs directly from Mike and Kate Westbrook’s site. Not sure about shipping to the USA.

Dusty Groove might also be worth a look, Stateside.

might be worth dropping an email to the Westbrook site to see if they have US distribution?

LAST NIGHT AT THE OLD PLACE is the first thing I'll get when I'm back home later this week.

Another three albums due this year:
GRANITE - on 27th July (strictly speaking it's Kate Westbrook's album;  got mine at the live premiere on 21st June)
STARCROSS BRIDGE - due in July, new Solo album by Mike Westbrook, on the hatology label
CATANIA - 2CD, recordings from the famous 1992 Sicily tour, due in September on the ENJA label

Congrats on your ‘Granite’ commission ! 

I’m already in on the ‘Catania’.:)

However - didn’t even know about this one. Cheers for the prompt.

Thanks, the audience and the band were really happy.

I hadn't noticed the Starcoss album cover is out already - release on 17th August apparently.

The Lou Gare tribute album is indeed available from the Westbrookjazz website along with Kate Westbrook's GRANITE which we are selling prior to its official release. We can ship to anywhere in the world. http://westbrookjazz.co.uk/westbrookrecords/index.shtml If you order outside the UK please be sure to pay the correct postage.

Sorry to say that we don't stock the Cadillac albums or Marching Song.

I ordered the Old Place CD from bandcamp and expect it to arrive this week.

It comes with instant downloads of FLAC and/or mp3,so I very much enjoyed listening :tup:tup:tup

Got the new solo album Starcross Bridge (hatOLOGY) a few days ago and have given in several (some partial) spins by now ... introspective music, most beautiful indeed! Official release seems to be mid August (amazon.de and co.uk say 17th, amazon.fr says 24th - the later may be relevant as Outhere is distributing Hat by now ... which is why I have it already - buying plenty of stuff right from the local distributor of Outhere, mostly classical, but their carrying Hat is most welcome of course!)

If you would like to support the artist, Mike Westbrook is selling advance copies of Starcross Bridge. We are not advertising it on Westbrookjazz at the moment as we do not want to move attention away from GRANITE by Kate Westbrook with music by Mike Westbrook. Starcross Bridge is £12.00 inc UK postage and £14.00 inc International postage. Please email me at westbrookrecords@westbrookjazz.co.uk if you'd like a copy. Payment with Paypal.

Oh, and I see your avatar is the other recent solo album ... based on the strenght of the old "Piano" and the new one on Hat, I'll have to order that one, sooner or later! :tup
