John Sangster - A little swamp music (with doo-wups)

John Sangster - A little swamp music (with doo-wups)
Sangster came on to the Melbourne jazz scene in 1946, the year of the first Australian Jazz Convention, but It was at the third convention (Prahran Town Hall, 1948) that he made the first of several indelible marks on the Australian jazz scene, playing hot and exiting cornet in a style like that of New Orleans veteran Thomas ‘Papa Mutt’ Carey and he won an award from Graeme Bell as ‘the most promising player’.

Sangster was central in several major developments in Australian music and was seminal in the formation of an ‘Australian’ jazz sound. Sangster was also at the forefront of progressive jazz movements in Australia: experimental, free-form, electronic and fusions. He had the broadest palette of any Australian performer/composer, with influences ranging from the ‘classic’ jazz corpus to jazz/pop avant-gardists and art music composers, notably Maurice Ravel. The result has been referred to as ‘cosmic dixieland’.

His life and music disclose a far more complex sensibility than the ocker/hobbit persona that he cultivated on stage and in his memoir Seeing The Rafters. He was ‘possibly the most talented of all the musicians who inhabit the jazz world of Australia.

About this track...

Firstly the orchestral swampy part, then some more mysterioso from Tony, Smedley and Slugs. The two clarinets enter, Darky on the right-hand and Paul on the left-hand channel. And the doo-wuppery begins.
