When the two part feature entitled The Improbability of the Clarke Boland Big Band posted to the blog on July 6, 2008 and July 8,2008, respectively, the following video tribute to this magnificent big band had not as yet been developed by the crackerjack graphics team at CerraJazz LTD.

In addition to clicking on the above highlighted dates to be linked to the feature via the blog archives, you can also read a re-posting of the piece sans photographs and album covers by scrolling down a bit on the columnar or left-hand side of the blog.

The tune is pianist Francy Boland’s New Box on which he solos along with Benny Bailey [tp], Sahib Shihab [bs], Derek Humble [as], Aake Persson [tb] and Johnny Griffin [ts].
