Jazz Connection is a true follower of the Jump Jive/Blues and early Rhythm 'n Blues style that hit America’s black post war population. With songs from Louis Prima, Wynonie Harris, King Curtis, Louis Jordan and Teddy Brannon, they bring a revival of the best and brightest star performers from these exciting years.
Founded 27 years ago in ‘jazzy’ hometown Breda, Jazz Connection is running like a train, swinging and rolling through Europe with their Jazz & Jive show. They have performed at major festivals and clubs in Holland, toured in Belgium, UK, Germany, Switzerland, Denmark, Scandinavia, France, Bulgaria and Poland as well as in the Middle East, Africa and Asia. Together with lots of humour, Jazz Connection produces their remarkable sound, transparent, sophisticated, catchy and groovy. Whether it’s a festive jive, tantalizing boogie or heartbreaking blues, you’ll recognise without doubt the sound of this unique sextet.
