CD01 - " Martin Bennett's Old Green River Band - One For The Road "

Cover 01

This live recording by P.E.K.Sound (PKCD-224) was made in May 2003 at Risley Park Hotel, near Derby. I worked with the Old Green River Band from 2002 to 2005, touring all over the U.K. and Europe. This album features the great Midlands' drummer, Pete Cotterill, who sadly died in March 2005.

Track 2 " Roses Of Picardy "

The famous 1st World War tune is given the full instrumental treatment here. On this track I play the clarinet and the clip is my solo on the number, followed by the start of the trombone solo by my old mate Eric Brierley.

Track 6 " Girl Of My Dreams "

Another instrumental track featuring the whole Band. The clip picks up at the end of the statement of the main theme to the end of my own baritone saxophone solo.

Track 7 " Blues On A Bad Day "

This is one of Martin's own inimitable blues. The clip includes Martin's own vocal on the last chorus, my two choruses, and the start of Eric's solo.

Track 8 " Just A Closer Walk With Thee "

This is a long excerpt from this track. The initial statement of the tune is played at New Orleans dirge tempo. Some great sustained trombone playing by Eric. It, predictably, picks up rhythm to a gentle bouncing feel. The clip is almost half of the entire track and I make no apology for ending it just after the conclusion of my own clarinet solo.
