Blue hot five switzerland

The name Blue Hot Five is drawn from the legendary Louis Armstrong Hot Five, with its rhythm section that has no bass and no drums; and also from the Blue Five of Clarence Williams, in which Louis also played. The repertoire and style of the band, however, are not limited to the Hot Five; they are also inspired by other greats of old-time jazz, as is demonstrated by the versatile abilities of the individual musicians. They are active in various different bands, but they especially enjoy making music together in this small group. Joy that’s plain to see.
