TRADITIONAL JAZZ AROUND THE WORLD Vol 2 - Japan, Canada and Belgium
Continuing the series which brings together three great bands from around the world in recordings of great New Orleans Jazz. We continue with a band from Japan - The New Orleans Naughties. There are few countries that have produced as many good New Orleans jazz revivalist players than the Land of the Rising Sun.
From Canada we have The Hot Five Jazzmakers. Toronto is a hotbed of good New Orleans Jazz as you will hear on this disc. If you don’t fancy a ride over Niagra Falls in a barrel, this is the second best excitement of choice from up the road. Not to be missed.
Belgium may have three official languages, but all the members of The New Orleans Roof Jazzmen use the International language of New Orleans Jazz! Recorded in Ghent, Jazz Crusade’s Big Bill classes this as one of the best recordings he has ever made!
This is the very best New Orleans jazz...check it out!
