CanUS Traditional Jazz Matinee - Jan. 7, 2024

https://hermannsjazz.com/donate
Howdy folks! A new year on the horizon and this could be a fun send-off for 2024. CanUS offers traditional New Orleans Jazz and with a group of the musicians who know how to get those feet tapping and lift your spirits in tough times with lots of room for you to bring friends as well. The musicians are well known to the fans of New Orleans jazz and have played together over the years to create a jolly musical interaction that comes with mutual respect and years of sharing the love of this unique genre. They have been a feature at Hermann's Jazz Club for 33 years while also touring jazz festivals in Canada & the U.S. with their concert at the Kennedy Center still showing on youtube.
Trumpet played by Simon Stribling adds that Aussie joy in bringing you those loved melodies, with the addition of some vocals , boosted by the Benny Goodman-esque clarinet of Al Pease, also on tenor sax in that beautiful Coleman Hawkins style. Doug Rhodes is on alto sax and vocals, featured on 5 of the 8 CanUS CD's all of which you can hear on youtube. Avram McCagherty brings a sparkle to any of the many bands he leads and we get to enjoy him, too. His banjo and vocals are a treasure for our city and then - wait for it…underpinning it all is the one of the best bass players you will find anywhere, Joey Smith along with Laurie Lyster, fabulous on the drums and vocals, too. And to finish and embellish is the early jazz piano style & vocals of Toni Blodgett, leader.
