We are pleased as punch about our new album Take Your Time And Fly.
Popular culture is most vivid when rooted in the rhythms and language of a particular place.
Smoking Time Jazz Club lives and works in New Orleans and draws inspiration from a city with a great musical legacy.
Sarah Peterson sings with a fresh vocal style that is full of ginger and soul. From start to finish she takes her cues from some of New Orleans greatest female blues singers.
When you hear the chug a lug of the How Long Blues you'll want to catch the next thing smokin' with John Joyce on the upright bass.
Russell Ramirez calls it jazz because it wobbles when you play it. His trombone playing on Dear Old Southland is done with skillful crooks, turns, slurs and appoggiaturas.
On Weed Smokers Dream Byron Asher arranges a unique contrapuntal stomp and gives 'em the grape with a fine and sublime clarinet wail.
Joe Goldberg's great exploration into the source of jazz continues with a cheerful little earful… the clarinet feature Temptation Rag.
The dancers will grind till they lose their mind when they hear Jack Pritchett's smeared half valved freak trumpet effects on Tight Like This.
Mike Voelker's big beat keeps things rockin' with a steady roll on Birmingham Black Bottom.
Joseph Faison, Brett Gardner and Molly Reeves on banjo and guitars remind the listener that a feeling of the beautiful things that happen to you is in the blues.
An ace on every instrument and a marvel all together. Take Your Time And Fly with the Smoking Time Jazz Club.
