FIRECRACKER JAZZ BAND: Red Hot Band
Euphonian, 2009

TRAD JAZZ / DIXIELAND – Skipping over the tunes you’ve heard a million times, this cookin’ sextet plays lesser-known but equally fun tunes from the 1920s and ‘30s, with a few originals mixed in. The band consists of mostly younger musicians, but they know this stuff inside & out. A highly enjoyable time warp... Bertie Wooster would love it.

* * * * * | Fo’s Picks: 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 9, 10, 14

1. uptempo romp & stomp, joyous
2. hotcha! happy charleston beat
3. wonderful march, “exotic” intro
4. laid-back slide ‘n’ drag
5. speedy flapper chase, male vocal
6. jaunty strut, rising vamp
7. hot second-line swing, scat vocal
8. bouncy jam (w/saw & fem chorus)
9. goofy original, fun old-timey vocal
10. midtempo stomp, very well done
11. weird tempo... snappy w/vocal
12. fast, technoish groove! Short.
13. high-steppin’, descending riff
14. snazzy vaudeville-band sound
