jump blues & jazz in the bookshop
Born in the swing revival of the 90’s, Jellyroll’s sound is at once assured and fine-tuned with freshly conceived arrangements steeped in the traditional form. Musicianship as precise as a well-made martini; only the finest ingredients in perfect measure.
The band covers jazz, swing and blues of the 30s, 40s and 50s, drawing on the songbooks of Louis Jordan, Cab Calloway, Big Mama Thornton and other jump-blues greats.
If that’s not enough to rattle your bones by, Jellyroll offers up their own brand of high-energy originals that have filled dance floors and captivated audiences up and down the west coast in jazz and blues festivals, countless nightclubs, a regular spot at the famous Derby in Los Angeles and a stint at the Half Note Jazz Club in Athens, Greece.
