Mississippi Swamp Dogs

A couple of years back, jazzing around Soho, I was fortunate enough to hear the Mississippi Swamp Dogs live at the Spice of Life. New Orleans jazz as it probably is today and none the worse for that!
A big impression at The Hideaway, Streatham, as part of the 2014 London Jazz Festival prompted leader/manager/trombone player Jeff Williams to draw my attention to a YouTube clip from that Festival gig which gives you an idea of what they serve up - in this case it's Pass the Peas.
Find out more.
Here is my review from 2013.
If they ever decide to hit the road beyond Watford then let's hope the North East is included.
