New Tunes for Mardi Gras

Readers of The Jazz Clarinet will already know that my Hot Club is playing the first Mardi Gras bash at DownBeat listed nightclub BLU Jazz + in Akron this Tuesday at 8pm. Our mission as a band has been to deliver top level performances of New Orleans style jazz, encompassing the entire history of the genre, from the earliest spirituals and songs through the various popular revivals, right up to the present day. I'm fortunate to have several songwriters in the band, and we'll be bringing you some of the best new material out there in our upcoming gigs, beginning this Tuesday, when we'll debut two new numbers: "BLU Mardi Gras (Blue Mardis Gras)" and "East Market Street Parade."

Get your beads ready, folks--hope to see you there!
