SMALL JAZZ BAND - The Jazz Band of Cordoba City This traditional jazz band saw the light of day back in 1981 in the Argentine city of Cordoba, with a view to recreating the style of the first bands of the 1920s, like those of Joe “King” Oliver, Clarence Williams, Louis Armstrong, Sam Morgan, Johnny Dodds, Jelly Roll Morton and others which were perhaps not that well-known yet of equal musical worth. The Small Jazz Band is made up of teachers of Music Education. Over the span of its career, this ensemble has performed on countless occasions at the most varied events; worthy of mention are its appearances at the traditional jazz festivals in the cities of Santa Rosa, Mendoza and Rosario and the Festival Nacional de Jazz Antiguo de Bahia Blanca. In 1991, the Small Jazz Band toured several cities in Spain and in 1992 did so in Germany, appearing at the most remarkable jazz clubs in Hannover, Berlin, Bremen and other cities of great cultural importance. The Small Jazz Band has released many albums, including Harlem Joys and Alta Sociedad, an album which comprises the repertoire of the band after more than a quarter of a century of existence, featuring the collaboration of guest musicians from the United States, France and Chile, as well as from Buenos Aires.
