The Cotton Lickers
jasz for recreational purposes
The Cotton Licker dedicate themselves to a sound that is truly addictive: jazz, the pop of the early 20ies up to the late 40ies, a time in musical history when listening to music could hardly be separated from moving the body along to it.
The soundtrack of the era of the swing dances, with Lindy Hop and Charleston as some of their most famous proponents, makes it hard to keep one’s cool. This holds true regardless of whether or not one is actually an expert in one or another of those dance forms or not.
The Cotton Lickers celebrate the (re)playing of choice originals of the time in their own style, making them a true jazz band rather than a jazz cover-band. Contemporary sound of the old school, translated to Vienna, thus JASZ - an addictive subsDance.
