Whenever I have seen Martin Litton perform, I have always hoped that I would have the opportunity to hear him play solo. And this year at the Whitley Bay Classic Jazz Party, my hopes took shape in a Saturday-morning recital by Martin of music associated with Teddy Wilson.
Martin is exceedingly articulate and well-versed in jazz history, so his introductions to the songs are poised and informative. And he’s introduced by the man who imagined this Party and makes it spring to life year after year, Mike Durham.

AIR MAIL SPECIAL:
Wilson’s playing was properly described as impeccable. I think the adjective well applies to Mr. Litton.
May your happiness increase.
