Happy May from Sylvie's Place. We are so excited to present for your listening pleasure The Vitality Five.
"Formed in 2015 and initially developing out of a series of informal workshop sessions in South London, the Vitality Five are an all-star quintet dedicated to performing and recording authentic 1920s small-group jazz. Specialising in the kind of blistering ‘hot stomps’ inspired by the records of the California Ramblers, Jelly Roll Morton’s Red Hot Peppers and many others, the Five include sensational virtuosi from the UK, USA and Australia. Since their formation they have appeared at festivals and toured across Britain and Europe, performed live on BBC Radio Three and recorded an eponymous debut album (2016) which is now available on ASTRO Records."
The band is made up of the following personnel:
MICHAEL McQUAID Clarinet/Alto Saxophone/Trumpet
DAVID HORNIBLOW Clarinet/Bass Saxophone
MARTIN WHEATLEY Banjo/Guitar
ANDREW OLIVER Pianoforte
NICHOLAS D. BALL Drums/Percussion
