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.

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.
