The Boilermaker Jazz Band presents a new CD of swinging music: 'Jump for Joy'! The title track is from the Duke Ellington stage play of the same name from 1941. This hot tune epitomises the sound and spirit of the Boilermaker Jazz Band. Listeners and dancers alike will revel in the riffs! Sing and Swing along with familiar melodies by the great composers like Irving Berlin, George Gershwin, Rogers and Hart, and of course Duke Ellington. Enjoy these solid jazz era classics, and maybe find a 'new' gem or two along the way. There are 19 tracks to enjoy here- nearly 68 minutes of joyful, soulful, swinging and sentimental sounds. You'll find vocals by chanteuse Jennie Luvv at her smooth and sultry best. Clarinetist Paul Cosentino and Pianist Mark Kotishion also add their unique vocal stylings to the mix. The whole 8 piece band (featuring 2 trombones!) tears into some hot jazz, while a smaller quartet provides a lighter touch. The rhythm is solid throughout- so be ready to cut a rug! The Boilermaker Jazz Band travels extensively throughout the year bringing our jazzy, snazzy sound to dance halls, festivals and concert venues across the country. With this recording, you'll feel like you're at alive Boilermaker Jazz Band show- As is the case will all of our previous CD's, no overdubbing, tracking, pitch correction or electronic instruments of any kind were used during the recording session. Please jump around responsibly.
