Jazz&Jazz confronts the Coronavirus Plague! Part 3

Over the years I have filmed more than 400 YouTubes featuring live jazz at a variety of events, with 880,700 plus views to date.

Now, to help compensate for the absence of live jazz, I’m
re-featuring selections of my Jazz&Jazz YouTubes.

Today’s choice, dating back to November, 2013:
The Golden Eagle Jazz Band
performing King Oliver’s “Canal Street Blues”
at Ramsgate Seaside Shuffle Jazz Club.
Kevin Scott (Leader/Banjo); Roy Stokes (Trombone);
Mick Scroxton (Trumpet); Alan Cresswell (Clarinet); Pete Jackman (Drums); Mike Broad (Bass).
