Album Description

This project was a direct outgrowth of Jeff Sanford’s Cartoon Jazz Band, a group that started as a “rehearsal band,” getting together on Monday nights to play big band charts of Raymond Scott’s music that Jeff had unearthed from dusty footlockers and other sundry locales. Grammy nominated guitarist and composer Lenny Carlson met Jeff in 2009 under questionable circumstances, however, our lawyers advise us not to comment on an ongoing investigation….  Sometime after that meeting Jeff asked - or blackmailed - Lenny into writing original music for the band, and Lenny has now been composing specifically for this group of musicians for over a decade. To have a set of regular musicians at your disposal, ready to play anything you put in front of them, is a composers dream. As a band, to have a dedicated composer at your disposal, ready to listen and make changes in real time, is also a dream. This extraordinary relationship between composer and musicians has resulted in a deep catalogue of truly creative contemporary jazz.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
