Band photo for Tony Pitt All Stars

Tony Pitt All Stars – Having ‘served my time’ plying banjo over some 50 years in the bands of Alex Walsh, Mike Cotton, Acker Bilk, Kenny Ball, Alan Elsdon, Laurie Chescoe and, most recently Terry Lightfoot and Phil Mason – all as a rhythm section ‘back room boy’ – it seems rather odd to be writing this as a (perceived at least) ‘bandleader’ – but that’s the way it goes. The band was formed in 2006 as a one off, for a gig at a West Country jazz club. I chose musicians who I thought would play the hot foot tapping traditional jazz that we all enjoyed playing, listening or dancing to in those far off days back in the 60’s, variously, in the bands of Monty Sunshine, Terry Lightfoot, Alan Elsdon and Kenny Ball and, while I can’t go back to those times, it takes me as close as I can get.
