Richie Kaye's Music & Mirth

Finalist Nominees, 10th Independent Music Awards, Jazz Song Category, for their rendition of Tiny Capers (on this CD).

If you think jazz musicians don't play the melody any more, this little jazz group will surprise and please you. You'll hear the lyrics you know and love to sing with, played on haunting clarinet or soaring saxophone to the melodies that still inspire -- all grounded by a swingin' rhythm guitar that just bounces along. No odd times, nothing avant-garde -- just the sweet beautiful tunefulness that makes American music the gem that it is, played with an occasional comic twist.

Audiences love their upbeat, energetic and happy renditions of America's great traditional jazz songs. But they're not stuck in the past: they think they bring the essence of these songs to life again in a new vein, so that everyday people can enjoy them today. Often witty, always well-played, their music bounces with variety: swing, bebop, rag, showtunes, even novelty numbers.

Come listen and tell us if you don't feel better after you've heard them!
