Next Treasured Jazz&Jazz YouTube: Tuba Skinny “New Orleans Bump”

Part 4 in the Series Featuring Jazz&Jazz YouTubes

Over the past three plus years I have travelled far and wide filming jazz bands and musicians at various venues including clubs, festivals, theatres and special events. In that time I have produced around 1,500 videos from which I have so far created well over 700 YouTubes. When time permits I enjoy browsing through them on my Jazz & Jazz YouTube Site.

But rather than just keep them listed there I’ve decided on a new series of periodical Jazz&Jazz posts featuring  a selection of my favourites. Not in date order nor necessarily based on video quality – top quality isn’t easily achievable at crowded jazz venues – but on shere enjoyment of the performances, the music, the appreciation of the fans, and the enthusiasm and rapport of the musicians and bands.


Fest Jazz, Châteauneuf-du-Faou, Brittany, July, 2014. The festival’s star act Tuba Skinny doing what they enjoy most playing en plein air in the town square, New Orleans Street Style. The number, typical to their 1920s/1930s themes – New Orleans Bump by Jelly Roll Morton’s Red Hot Peppers. Even the church bells sounded a peal of applause. Tuba Skinny are: Erika Lewis (vocals, bass drum), Shaye Cohn (cornet), Todd Burdick (Tuba), Jason Lawrence (Banjo), John Doyle (Clarinet), Barnabus Jones (Trombone), Robin Rapuzzi  (Washboard).

First in the series was “Davenport Blues” with Alan Gresty and Tony Pitt.
Part 2: Denise Gordon and Roy Williams “Sugar”!
Part 3: Barry Palser Presents “That Dada Strain”
