Jelly Street Jazz Band Picture


Jelly Street lies at the crossroads of low-down dirty blues, straight-ahead ballads and hard-swinging jazz. Call it Rock-a-jelly Jazz: They’ll start with Sophie Tucker, hit some viper and jelly tunes on their way to Ella Fitzgerald and Bill Evans and end up on Chet Atkins’ front porch. Sometimes they steer these influences–marvelously–all into one lane. Each performance is a smokin’ hot trip!
