Basin Street Brawlers : at Upton in June and on Longside Radio throughout April.
‘London’s top hot jazz ensemble’ (visitlondon.com). This band of master musicians swing and stomp their way through the most beautiful melodies and raucous rags of the 1920s and 1930s ‘with all the energy and assurance of a bunch of Kansas City veterans’ (The Sunday Times). Their debut record ‘It’s Tight Like That’ is described as a work of ‘world class musicianship’ (BBC). The CD has been chosen to be record of the month by Alun Jones who plays Jazz on Sunday evenings from 9.00pm on Longside Radio.
