The Hot Sardines are destined for greatness / Blasting News

Bookmark and Share

If brutal but subtle is not on the palette for the day, then there is no better way to change gears than to take notice of "The Hot Sardines" because they may be the most talented jazz band to come from #America since The Squirrel Nut Zippers. Pianist Evan Palazzo has a playing approach that easily puts him on par with the greats of jazz from any genre (including the old masters) while singer and band co-founder Elizabeth Bougerol has a voice that could melt glass block. The clarinet screams are reminiscent of the great Henry Cuesta, as heard on "Bei Mir Bist du Schoen" and the just released, "Be Like You". The music of the Hot Sardines is infectious in every way, with melodies that will not leave the mind, and solo work that will lead to repeated rewinds and re-listens. The musicality and flare shown by this act is beyond the ability to describe....a must hear.
