The New Foxtrot Serenaders - Buttonhole & Tails (CD)
The late-evening performances of The New Foxtrot Serenaders have been a highlight of each English Music Festival for the past six years, resulting in much toe-tapping and even dancing in the aisles.
Works featured on the disc include favourites such as 'Run, Rabbit, Run', 'Could You Please Oblige Us with a Bren Gun?', 'Mad Dogs and Englishmen' and 'Keep the Home Fires Burning'; and other works range from 'Love Is the Sweetest Thing' to Noel Gay's 'Leaning on a Lamp-Post'. These nostalgic works are presented in previously unrecorded arrangements by the late John Ashworth, pianist and arranger to the band for many years, and to whose memory the recording is dedicated.
