Jimmy Yancey Tunes on Hog's Back Rolls UK
By Stuart Barnes

-- forwarded message, please reply to sender and MMD --

Julian Dyer has suggested that I let your members know that Sid
O'Connell and I (Stuart Barnes) of the PPG, have produced the first of
what we hope will be a series of blues rolls under the Hog's Back Rolls
label.  The first two rolls are of Yancey playing "State Street
Special" and "How Long Blues".

We have a very few left so if any of your readers are interested they
are invited to telephone Stuart Barnes on 01483 502038 or email to
<>.  The cost is 11.50 GBP per roll including
post and packing to UK addresses.

The name "Hog's Back" comes from a high point of ground near to which
both Sid O'Connell and I live.  We will hope to do some more blues
rolls in due course as these first ones seem to have been well

Thanks for your help,

Stuart Barnes
St. Catherine's, Guildford, Surrey

 [ Julian adds, "Sid O'Connell has created MIDI sequences recreating
 [ (pretty well exactly) the original 78s, so the sequences are quite
[ close to what you would have got if Yancey had sat down at a MIDI
 [ keyboard.  They are very effective and only this weekend a jazz
 [ enthusiast friend was most approving of them!"  -- Robbie
