COVER NOTES

In ancient Greece, Sophists were a group who pursued and communicated knowledge – people that we would call intellectuals today. For the sophisticated, educated palate, the best of wine and food, of literature and music. There have always been entertainers of great talent, grace and wit. Our programme offers popular music for the discerning listener, performed by a truly all-star line-up.
Carroll Gibbons, the elegant, soft spoken pianist, bandleader and composer, for thirty years was an important part of the British dance band scene. Long resident at the Savoy Hotel in London, Gibbons hailed from Clinton, Massachusetts and first came to Britain in 1924. Except for a short period back in America when he dallied with motion pictures, Carroll Gibbons was a prolific performer in Britain who made frequent gramophone recordings and broadcasts through where his distinctive piano playing proved highly popular. On the Air was his signature tune. I Double Dare You was a popular hit of 1937.

  1. Revd S

    Thanks for the prompt response to my phone call. I have already played the CD twice and think that the reproduction and tone are simply “first class” – better than most and as good as the best

  2. Mr WI

    I have eight CDs now and have been very impressed from the outset with the quality of reproduction, in particular, as well as the general presentation.  Keep up the good work
