Through the joint medium of gramophone records and wireless broadcasting, the rise of the American big bands in the later 1930s filtered through to the British public. Tumultuous events then took a hand when the U.S. entered the Second World War at the end of 1941 and Britain itself received a taste of everything American (except the generous food rations) first hand, with the music of the now dominant big bands much in evidence. It wasn't that this country was short of its own home-grown talent, good dance bands were plentiful, it was just that the 'Yanks' had a panache and youthful brashness which was the product of a much younger, less world-weary and more diverse culture. It would be very flattering to say, and simply not true, that one English band arose to challenge American music supremacy, but certainly one band did arise from the war years which went on to become the best at home and recognised for its talent across the Atlantic. Enter Ted Heath, worth special comment are the six tracks which comprise Fats Waller's 'London Suite' beginning with "Chelsea". Composed by Waller during his visit to England in 1939, the Heath recordings were the first time they had been fully orchestrated, with Eric Jupp arranging three of them "Limehouse", "Piccadilly" & "Soho" the others by Alan Bristow "Chelsea", Reg Briggs "Whitechapel" and Bruce Campbell "Bond Street". Beyond dispute, Ted Heath established himself in the popular field as Britain's premier post war band. Taking his inspiration from Glenn Miller, Heath engaged the best musicians and arrangers, and chose an exciting and demanding repertoire to match. His success can be gauged by acceptance in that most demanding of markets, the U.S.A and this new Jasmine compilation includes the titles which first introduced him to America. A superb 24 tracks selections with nearly 70 minutes playing time.
