THE JAZZCATS take you back to the time when the Savoy Ballroom was at its peak with dance, laughter, and people toasting into the wee hours. Some of Sweden’s foremost young jazz musicians have come together in one band to carry on the tradition of jazz.
The Jazzcats sounds like a big band but in a smaller and more intimate format with a unique ”horn section,” consisting of trombone, clarinet, and violin. The repertoire includes instrumental jazz from the golden era of swing and contains songs written by composers such as Duke Ellington, Cole Porter, and Count Basie as well as vocal hits made famous by Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra. The upcoming album is a lovely mix of old musical songs, lindy hop hits and famous big band songs, which will instantly put you in a good mood!
