SPECIAL SURPRISE! Coming April 7 for a reunion with CanUS Jazz Band at their Traditional Jazz Matinee 1-3 pm is one of the 4 founding members, Jim Armstrong on trombone. The quartet was created by Toni Blodgett, piano, with Joey Smith, bass and Don Leppard on drums and Jim doubling on trumpet & trombone.

Jim will be joining the group for a joyful return from his current home near Portland! You’ll hear some of the hit tunes that made this group one of the most popular on the traditional jazz circuit in the U.S. and Canada since its creation in 1991. They are known for their hot jazz and smooth harmonies on the vocals and any of their 8 CD’s you can hear on youtube. They already have a request from a fan who’ll be watching the livestream from Phoenix for them to include Fats Waller’s ”Porter’s Love Song To A Chambermaid”.

So join Simon Stribling, trumpet; Doug Rhodes, also sax; Al Pease, clarinet; Avram McCagherty, banjo;Lauri Lyster, drums; Joey Smith bass, and Toni Blodgett, piano. Better book early!
