In conjunction with The Jazz Age: American Style in the 1920s, we liven up the joint with Butler, Bernstein & the Hot 9—a rip-roaring combo led by the remarkable pianist Henry Butler and the irrepressible trumpeter Steven Bernstein. With a nod to the Hot Five and Hot Seven bands of Louis Armstrong, the Hot 9 takes the early jazz of the 1920s as its starting point.
