About The Album
The Bailsmen are proud to be releasing their third, lively studio album, From Up Top, featuring 13 tracks of waltzes, calypso classics and deep-cut jazz standards.
Recorded over two days in New York City, From Up Top captures the chemistry and whimsical arrangement of a Bailsmen concert while at the same time meticulously staying true to a classic, vintage studio work.
About The Band
Taken from the website:
Brooklyn’s The Bailsmen play Gypsy Jazz and Vintage Swing.
With over 200 events and concerts a year, The Bailsmen are New York’s busiest jazz band. Mixing French bistro, New Orleans dance party, and New York sophistication.
The Bailsmen have been inspired by Django Reinhardt, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, and Sidney Bechet since 2011.
In the last 8 years, the Bailsmen have expanded their repertoire to include original compositions and deep traditional jazz cuts.
Their sound is straight from New York by way of New Orleans and Paris in the interwar years.
Nodding to Django Reinhardt, Sidney Bechet, Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington, classics and originals are all given a fresh spin by these young musicians.
No matter what they’re playing, it’s jazz hot.
