To mark the 50th anniversary of one of the most famous recordings in British jazz history, Stan Tracey’s Under Milk Wood is being performed at Herts Jazz Club this Sunday, October 25.

Reissued continually since its 1965 release, the evocative sound of saxophonist Bobby Wellins played an essential role in the original recording. He will be joined by Andrew Cleyndert and Clark Tracey, both members of Stan’s groups for the last 35 years, and Stan’s personal choice of pianist Steve Melling. The narrator of Dylan Thomas’ seminal work is Stan’s grandson Ben Tracey, Stan’s preferred voice.
