To complement Vocalions series of Ambrose dance band CDs, we proudly present this addition to the series, but at super bargain price. Ambrose is rightly famous as having led one of Britain s finest dance bands during the golden era of the 1920s, 30s and 40s, and here he provides further evidence of just why his band was one of the best in the land. He applies his exacting approach to classics such as Juan Tizols Caravan and a beautiful arrangement of De Fallas Fire Dance, but many of the compositions featured here come from the pen of clarinettist Sid Phillips, who for a time during the 1930s was a member of Ambroses band. They include charming numbers such as A Burmese Ballet, The Night Ride and Wood and Ivory. The closing tracks Dance of the Potted Puppet & Swing Low, Sweet Clarinet are featured solo spots for clarinettists Carl Barriteau and Reginald Kell, respectively.
