Duncan Swift looks for the Lion

The late Duncan Swift has piano artistry from the album Out Looking For The Lion.

There’s jazz from piano genius Duncan Swift plus contributions from British artists Robert Fowler, Anna Brooks, Tommy Whittle and an interview with Stacey Kent including a few songs from her.

Plus from the Midlands there’s the Worcestershire Youth Jazz Orchestra, Richard Leach and his 7 Stars of Jazz.

In the history of jazz we start with Louis Armstrong and his Hot Five, moving onto the 1940s with music from Lester Young, Charlie Ventura, Barney Bigard and Duke Ellington while Vic Dickenson represents the 1950s and Diana Krall and Karrin Allyson bring us right up-to-date.
