Chris Pearce's Frenchmen Street Jazz Band - Volume One

Chris Pearce's Frenchmen Street Jazz Band - Volume One
CD / Product Number: PKCD365

The band was formed about ten years ago, following a visit by Chris and his Brother-in-law to New Orleans in 2001, but thereafter only performed on an occasional basis. Last year, following the decision by the Antique Six Jazzband to stop playing after 2011, Chris established his 'new' band in its present form with Tony Davis trumpet, Chris on clarinet and saxes, Richard Leach trombone, Ian Parry banjo guitar, John Vickers double bass and Graham Smith drums. Chris says his aim is to present a well rehearsed outfit which is not hidebound by any particular jazz style and with the emphasis on playing high quality traditional jazz with most of the repertoire drawn from the the early part of the 20th century. This band deserves to succeed and should be a great asset to the British traditional jazz club scene in years to come.
