Vinyl LP pressing. 2014 album from the NYC Jazz outfit. Bandleader Evan Bibs Palazzo and lead singer Miz Elizabeth combine with the Sardine ensemble of powerhouse musicians and their very own tap dancer to play hot jazz as it was in the era when live music was king, with a little glamour, a little grit, and a lot of passion. Even while giving voice to the history-defining Jazz of the 1920's, 30's, and 40's, the Hot Sardines vibrant performances bridge generations and captivate 21st century audiences. The Hot Sardines have a distinctive recipe for making musical magic: take a blustery brass lineup, layer it over a rhythm section led by a stride-piano virtuoso in the Fats Waller vein, and tie it all together with a one-of-the-boys front-woman who sings in both English and French with a voice from another era. The brainchild of Bibs and Miz Elizabeth, the Sardine sound fuses musical influences from New York, Paris, and New Orleans that were nurtured from the Prohibition era through the Great Depression, WWII and beyond.
