Various Artists: Good To The Last Drop – Ember Soul

Mike Atherton, Fantastic Voyage Records, June 2009

EMBER RECORDS was founded in London in 1960 by Jeffrey S. Kruger. A longtime jazz fan – he played piano in his own band Sonny Kruger & His Music as a youngster and owned the capital's leading jazz club the Flamingo – Jeffrey set about issuing prime cuts of jazz on his new label but, realising that diversity would bring success, he soon branched out into other styles of music such as pop and country.
