Album Review

Genre: Jazz
Review: Fourteen cuts of pure joy leap from Lichtman’s latest disc, as he traces the history of jazz musicians that moved to Queens from the more expensive Manhattan in the 1920s. Backed by the Queensboro Six, the music swings, shakes, rattles, and walks with serious sass. Guest vocalists and musicians add additional flair.
