    Richard Marshall playing it with Grimethorpe is classy ('Grimethorpe In Concert' - Egon: CD-SFZ105).... he adds a little more notewise to the original. Alternately, Alan Exley plays it with Imps ('Endeavour' - Doyen: DOYCD006).

    Do you know where you can get hold of the music? I tried ordering it after hearing it on the Grimethorpe CD and in a concert by them, but nowhere seems to have it :(

    A good recording is Jim Shepherd and Dyke, I'd have to dig out the album for the name etc for details.

    Jimmy Shepherd recorded 'ZELDA' in 1970 with Black Dyke Mills Band on 'Golden Guinea Stereo GSGL 10463' the record was entitled IVORY AND BRASS the conductors on the record were Geoffrey Brand & Roy Newsome..........

    Among the others listed is a CD of solos by Jack Mackintosh - "The Cornet King".

    I believe the Jim Shepherd recording was on an LP called Ivory and Brass. Keith Quinn might be more helpful on that. It was recorded in 1970.

    I had that one on VHS until it was lost some years ago:-(

    I agree with you that it was a brilliant performance (with a teary-eyed Harry Mortimer, who made this solo his own, in the audience it was quite emotional).

    I also have an old boot-leg concert performance with David King from around 1990!

    Zelda - Cornet Solo

    My favourite recording of Zelda is on the LP Ivory and Brass, recorded by Jim Shepherd with Black Dyke, on Golden Guinea GSGL10463 in 1970.

    I have it in stock and is available for sale from my website, under the Brass Band Records section of www.euph9.freeserve.co.uk/quinn.htm

    It is staggering to think that Jim recorded this solo nearly 35 years ago and I believe it has not been matched for clarity of sound and articulation. A true champion!
