Clarke-Boland Big Band - Live At Ronnie Scott's album
The Kenny Clarke/Francy Boland Big Band was one of the most noteworthy jazz big bands formed outside the United States. It was created in 1961, when, helped by producer Gigi Campi, the US drummer Kenny Clarke, the Belgian pianist and composer Francy Boland and the ex-Ellington bassist Jimmy Woode brought together several jazz musicians of note. Although based in Europe, the band was truly multinational, with several US musicians in the line-up.

Ronnie Scott "The first week is a remarkable success and the second is even bigger. Attendance records for the club are broken. In a fantastic fortnight at Ronnie Scott's which broke attendance records and attracted royal patronage in the person of Princess Margaret, these 16 musical missionaries from six different countries more than lived up to their billing as 'one of the great big bands. In the liner note to the 'Rue Chaptal' album, John Legg described 'Sax No End' as 'a giant hit if ever I heard one', and added that it was the most vigorously applauded and acclaimed number in the C-BBB repertoire during the two-week engagement at Ronnie Scott's. This arrangement is a freewheeling vehicle for the tenors of Griffin, Scott and Coe and the three-chorus saxophone soli passage is a masterpiece of creative arranging.
