This is a reissue of an original album on Doug Dobell’s legendary 77 label, based at the famous Charing Cross Road Record Shop. Albert Nicholas was a favourite of Doug and John Jack, Cadillac founder, and one of the great jazz originators – he played with Jelly Roll Morton and others before settling in Europe. This release includes unissued material, and a complete live session, never before released, recorded on acetate by Doug, of Albert and the Humphrey Lyttelton Band playing at an all night dive in London’s China Town in the 50s. Includes newly commissioned artwork and unseen photos. One for the collector and music lover!
