Panorama Jazz Band–New Orleans Jazz, Thursday, September 20, 20127:30pm
Panorama Jazz Band is a fabulous party band from the Big Easy, whose repertoire draws on the most exciting music from around the world: the Caribbean rhythms of Martinique in the French West Indies; the exotic Klezmer and Balkan melodies of Eastern Europe, and the non-stop syncopation of New Orleans second-line. By turns a funky jazz band, a dance band, and a swing orchestra, Panorama Jazz Band is a seven-piece acoustic group featuring the instruments that have been used to get crowds dancing for centuries–clarinet, alto saxophone, trombone, accordion, tenor banjo, drums and tuba.
