Sant Andreu Jazz Band Reign in Spain

Just watched/listened to the Sant Andreu Jazz Band with alto player Jesse Davis playing Benny Carter's Easy Money. Even taking alto wiz Davis out of the equation this still adds up to one superb band - imagine what they'll be like when they leave school!
Thank you Patti D for bringing this amazing band to my attention.

If the Sant Andreu Jazz Band turned up in Sunderland at next year's Great North Big Band Jazz Festival (March 6-8) I reckon they would do alright!
