Fasten your seatbelts and prepare for a wild ride through the streets of New Orleans, with the debut album from The Jelly Roll Jazz Band!
Featuring all your favourite trad. jazz standards, this C.D. is sure to get your fingers clicking and your toes tapping. Recorded on an analog reel-to-reel tape recorder for that authentic vintage feel, this is your chance to enjoy the sound of a slightly unhinged group of musicians breathing new life into these classic tunes.
This album showcases the band in its rarely-heard quartet form, with trumpet, clarinet, banjo and double bass all combining to oscillate your eardrums in ways you never even thought possible. If you feel intimidated by stuffy jazz musicians and chords with more than four notes in, then you have nothing to fear here as the band’s cheeky sense of humour shines through on every track.
Nowhere else will you hear such a majestic combination of instruments playing such moving repertoire as ‘When the Saints’, ‘The Bare Necessities’ and ‘Moon River’. Nowhere else will you hear such heart-rending interpretations of the core banjo repertoire. And nowhere else will you hear one man play two clarinets at the same time! Well, unless you come to one of our gigs…
