New CD from The Allan Ganley Jazz Legacy
"June Time" - available now!

"No-one in his generation was more gifted or more dedicated to the creation of jazz than Allan Ganley, one of our music's finest drummers and most original composers.  I am proud to have been a friend of this remarkable musician". 
Sir John Dankworth

"June Time" is the much-anticipated album of Allan Ganley's big band arrangements and compositions.  Named after a track on the album composed by Allan, dedicated to his wife, June.

 

The album is a mixture of well-known (and some not so well-known) standards, plus some familiar jazz pieces all arranged by Allan, as well as several original compositions.  The common thread running throughout, is Allan's original big band arranging skill that makes his music so enjoyable to the listener and equally enjoyable for the musicians to play.

CDs are priced at £10 each.  To purchase a copy of the CD please email mail@allanganley.com
