This is a double CD of the NDO containing many previously unreleased numbers by the band.

It has been carefully compiled from the only known master tapes and other sources.- as you will have seen from the other pages on the site, the BBC recorded many sessions with the NDO as inserts to their Radio 2 programmes in the 60’s and 70’s, but these were played twice and then wiped - so it was thought that precious little in the way of recordings of the band could exist.
After a long and exhaustive hunt for numbers by the band, I have heard all the “broadcast quality” material available (and some that sadly is not !), which reflects the band for what it was - arguably the best Big Band the BBC ever produced.

Both the BBC and the Musicians Union have recognised how important this band was, and have given their blessing to the production of this double CD,

Diamonds was produced by the NDO project at cost, as a mark of respect to a unique group of musicians
