The New Wonders
1920s Hot Jazz
In the roaring twenties, jazz was everywhere: in every home, on every radio, in every speakeasy brimming with life. Jazz was new, and its fresh mysteries captured the urgency of youth like no music ever before. Now, Mike Davis (cornet) takes you back to those carefree nights with The New Wonders, the hottest band in show business. Composed of some of the most educated and dedicated young musicians on the New York early jazz scene, the New Wonders offer an authentic taste of the music that became the soundtrack of the Lost Generation. With Josh Holcomb (trombone), Tom Abbott (clarinet), Dalton Ridenhour (piano), and Jay Rattman (bass saxophone).
