The Rascals of Rhythm have a very distinctive sound and once heard become instantly recognisable. The band does not fall into any obvious category, which is one of its great strengths and provides a refreshing visit to an era of swinging, carefree jazz with a repertoire drawn from Jelly Roll Morton and King Oliver to Fats Waller, Duke Ellington and the wonderful tunesmiths whose work makes up the Great American Songbook. The band is tuneful, swings like mad & exudes energy & enthusiasm and is a well organised and distinctive unit.
