About the Show
Why not join me for an hour at Rookwood Sounds Very own Hot Jazz Café .
With its origins in New Orleans in the early 1900s, hot jazz is a blend of ragtime, blues, and brass band marches. In New Orleans, small bands played hot jazz at community events ranging from dances to funerals, making the music an integral part of the city. Improvisation is an essential aspect of Dixieland jazz and has remained an integral part of most, if not all, jazz styles that followed.
We will also cross continents and cross into Europe for a trip into the world of Gypsy Jazz. Gypsy jazz (also known as gypsy swing, “jazz manouche” or hot club-style jazz) is a style of small-group jazz originating from the Romani guitarist Jean “Django” Reinhardt, in conjunction with the French swing violinist Stéphane Grappelli
