Vitality 5

Thu 24th May. 9:30:pm

Formed in 2015 and initially developing out of a series of informal workshop sessions in South London, the Vitality Five are an all-star quintet dedicated to performing and recording authentic 1920s small-group jazz. Specialising in the kind of blistering ‘hot stomps’ inspired by the records of the California Ramblers, Jelly Roll Morton’s Red Hot Peppers, Johnny Dodds’ Hometown Band and others, the Five include sensational virtuosi from the UK, USA and Australia.
