There are numerous Ted Heath albums parading around wearing the title Listen to My Music. Several of these are part of a series released during the late '90s by the Hep record label, surveying in detail the early recordings of this solid, often exciting British big band. Vol. 2 focuses upon the years 1946 and 1947. High points in this part of the Heath story include an updated version of Sy Oliver's "Opus One" (Heath first recorded this number in 1944); two substantial entries from the Ellington book; durable standards like "I've Found a New Baby" and "Exactly Like You"; and "Ad Lib Frolic," a feisty original by trumpeter Kenny Baker. Vocals are attributed to Heath's drummer, Jack Parnell. One prime participant in the postwar English big-band scene was tenor saxophonist Tommy Whittle, an essential component in the Ted Heath band from 1946 to 1952. His work with Heath as documented on this disc deserves wider recognition. ~ arwulf arwulf
