Jellymould Jazz is extremely proud to present a new release from inimitable British jazz musician and composer Duncan Lamont. Duncan has rearranged his music for the iconic 1970’s BBC television animation series Mr Benn for an all-star big band comprising some of the best jazz musicians in the UK and featuring the much-missed Kenny Wheeler as soloist.
Comprising over an hour of music – and recorded, immaculately, in a single day – As if by magic… captures the essence of Duncan Lamont’s broad experience in jazz composition and arrangement. For those with fond memories, certainly there are melodies which possess a smile-raising aura of nostalgia. But here is a big band suite which stands tall on its own merits, whose simple origins belie its harmonic complexities, and whose blithe demeanour and refined musicianship charm at every turn.
