Jazz Survivors

With all the hip hop and instrumental pop in the world, there's precious little authentic jazz left to be found these days. Here's some.

The Jazz Survivors are all about the best traditions of jazz ~ America's only original music ~ from swinging Ellington to bopping Freddie Hubbard to lilting Jobim (OK, so he's Brazilian). We like music with substance, with the strongest melodies, with genuine fun, with depth to explore.

And to be honest, we like lots of other music, and we play some of it when the mood strikes or the occasion dictates. You might hear some blues, smooth jazz, R&B, pop and even polka. Good tunes are good tunes!

In  memory of our friend and violinist, Leif Reck, now playing with heaven's best.

1. The Gigmasters wedding blogger solicited our advice for couples planning their big day.
    (Spoiler alert: We just advised making a list of the things to do before the wedding, then staying calm and getting things done one at a time.)

2. The Gigmasters event-planning blogger solicited our advice on choosing a jazz band.
