Traditional Jazz in the North West of the U.K.

Welcome to my Traditional Jazz Pages
508 pages of News, views and music as at Wednesday September 24, 2014


Welcome to my world of Traditional Jazz. The pages which follow are a tribute to the musicians who have dedicated themselves to playing the music of New Orleans and Dixieland in the North West of the British Isles. Although I try very hard to ensure all the information about the bands and events are correct, please check with the venues concerned before setting out on your journey.  - Fred Burnett.

Speakeasy Bootleg Band play the vintage sounds of the Cotton Club and Birdland, the Gatsby era, the illegal drinking haunts of prohibition Harlem and Chicago and countless rent parties, with driving bass, explosive drums and sophisticated witty vocals. They might not be your idea of a 'traditional' jazz band, but they certainly play traditional jazz, and the younger generation love them. In this video they are not quite so  explosive, and the ending came quite swiftly as the passengers climbed aboard and the band realised that the train was about to leave them behind on the platform along with me!
