52nd Street Jazz Band Phoenix, Arizona
The 52nd Street Jazz Band, based in Phoenix, AZ, plays "Chicago Style" jazz. The rhythm sections of these bands substitute the string bass for tuba & guitar for banjo. Musically played in more of a swing-style, 4-to-the-bar manner rather than the 2-beat style of many traditional dixieland bands. It's a is faster paced style, resembling a hustle-bustle, big city life in the 1930's on 52nd St., NY.
