“Jive by Five plays a hard-swinging re-creation of the great jump band style of the 1940s that moved out of Harlem and Chicago’s south side to become part of mainstream jazz. They’re one of the most exciting bands I’ve heard”—James Lincoln Collier, author of “Louis Armstrong: An American Genius,” “Duke Ellington,” “Jazz: The American Theme Song,” and “Benny Goodman and the Swing Era,” all published by Oxford University Press.
