Fumi Okiji’s Old Time Jazz Band Northern Tour Dates

Displaying image004.jpgFumi Okiji’s Old Time Jazz Band is a joyous 
celebration of the great tradition of jazz song. 
The music is essentially lovingly crafted interpretations of  from Jazz’s inception, through the interwar years. 
The band takes in the clues, New Orleans, black vaudeville,  Louis, Ella and Billie. While tackling the material with upmost reverence it does with both feet firmly in the 21st Century. Featuring Idris Rahman on clarinet and sax, Ben Davis on cello, Stuart Hall on guitar and Roy Dodds on drumsThe Old Time Jazz Band is simply a great group of musicians playing timeless, great songs.
Together they make a nostalgic sound that crackles with 21st century flair.’(Robert Shore, Metro).‘It is unapologetically old time jazz and at the heart is Fumi’s rich, sonorous, contralto accompanied by a stellar band of musicians.’ (Simisola Balogun)
