About This Box

Welcome to the Jazz bar, a collection of some of the finest Jazz musicians - from iconic legends to incredible pressings, this is the perfect winter warmer

What you’ll be listening to...

Your box will include a handpicked selection of two or three albums from this collection:

Ella and Louis

Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong

Ella and Louis

Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong

Ella and Louis is an inspired collaboration, masterminded by producer Norman Granz.

Both artists were riding high at this stage in their careers, and Granz assembled a stellar quartet of Oscar Peterson (piano), Buddy Rich (drums), Herb Ellis (guitar) and Ray Brown (bass). Equally inspired was the choice of material, with the gruffness of Armstrong's voice blending like magic with Fitzgerald's stunningly silky delivery. Outstanding are Irving Berlin's "Cheek to Cheek" and "Isn't This a Lovely Day," and everything else works like a dream, with the golden star going to the Gershwin brothers' "They Can't Take That Away from Me." Gentle and sincere, this is deserving of a place in every home.

Nitin Sawhney Live at Ronnie Scots

Nitin Sawhney

Expertly melding flamenco, funk and Indian ragas while branching into primeval blues, tabla breakbeats, beatboxing and much more, Sawhney and his band weave a textural tapestry of treats to the sheer delight of the audience.

Nitin Sawhney’s many outstanding studio works, plus scores of soundtracks (including the forthcoming blockbuster Jungle Book), have spanned more than two decades and have seen him recognised with the 2017 Ivor Novello Lifetime Achievement Award. This, his first live album, features highlights from his ten studio albums, including 1999’s Mercury Music Prize nominated Gold awarded Beyond Skin, the millennial epic Prophesy and his latest work Dystopian Dream. Recorded at the legendary Ronnie Scott’s Club, London in 2016, these re-imaginings of old and new favourites buzz with life and joy.

Blue Train

John Coltrane

Blue Train

John Coltrane

1957 was a particularly productive year for John Coltrane.

After being "fired" from the Miles Davis Quintet, he began recording as a frontman for Prestige records, he grew musically and personally thanks to his collaboration as a sideman with Thelonious Monk and, for the fulfilment of a previous economical arrangement with Blue Note producer Alfred Lion, he recorded Blue Train for that label.

Frank Sinatra

My Way

Products Frank Sinatra

Throughout his seven-decade career, Frank Sinatra performed on more than 1,400 recordings and was awarded 31 gold, nine platinum, three double platinum, and one triple platinum album by the Recording Industry Association of America.

Sinatra demonstrated a remarkable ability to appeal to every generation and continues to do so; his artistry still influences many of today’s music superstars. The Oscar winner also appeared in more than 60 films and produced eight motion pictures. 

Released on Reprise in March 1969, and produced by Don Costa and Sonny Burke, My Way features a varied collection of contemporary pop songs, including Lennon and McCartney’s “Yesterday,” Simon and Garfunkel’s “Mrs. Robinson,” and the iconic title track, “My Way.” Recorded on December 30, 1968, in just one take, My Way charted in the U.S. and stayed on the U.K. charts for a record-breaking 75 weeks.

Modes and Blues: Live at Ronnie Scott's 1964

Tubby Hayes Quintet

Modes and Blues: Live at Ronnie Scott's 1964

Tubby Hayes Quintet

A previously unreleased mono recording of Modes and Blues from the Tubby Hayes Quintet's weekly Ronnie Scott's residency on 8th February 1964

Regarded as one of the masterworks of British modern jazz, Modes and Blues shows the Quintet at the very height of its powers, channelling the new musical flavours and inspiration that Tubby Hayes had absorbed from the cutting edge of jazz and the new directions of John Coltrane.


Recorded with Hayes' approval by Les Tomkins on his Ferrograph tape recorder, this is one of the most engrossing of all his stretch-out epics. Hayes digs in deep with marathon and breathtaking soloing, trumpeter Jimmy Deuchar delivers his characteristically lyrical improvisation, and there's dynamic interplay and drive from the great Terry Shannon, Freddy Logan and Allan Ganley rhythm section.

'Round About Midnight

Miles Davis

'Round About Midnight

Miles Davis

Miles Davis' first album for Columbia, 'Round About Midnight, represents both the beginning of a three-plus-decade relationship with the famed label as well as the start of an extended collaboration with then-unknown saxophonist John Coltrane.

As one of the era's only complete start-to-finish full-length LPs, the 1957 set stands as a hard-bop benchmark—a summation of the styles that came before its creation, an immersion into the period's cutting-edge strains, and a hint of the frivolous modalism that would follow.

The Incredible Jazz Guitar Of Wes Montgomery

Wes Montgomery

The Incredible Jazz Guitar Of Wes Montgomery

Wes Montgomery

The incredible Wes Montgomery of 1960 was more discernible and distinctive than the guitarist who would emerge a few years later as a pop stylist and precursor to George Benson in the '70s.

On this landmark recording, Montgomery veered away from his home Indianapolis-based organ combo with Melvin Rhyne, the California-based Montgomery Brothers band, and other studio sidemen he had been placed with briefly. Off to New York City and a date with Tommy Flanagan's trio, Montgomery seems in his post- to hard bop element, swinging fluently with purpose, drive, and vigor not heard in an electric guitarist since bop progenitor Charlie Christian. Setting him apart from the rest, this recording established Montgomery as the most formidable modern guitarist of the era, and eventually its most influential.
