David Hansen's Garden District Band
The Garden District Band is a sophisticated jazz ensemble performing from a huge repertoire ranging from classic standards, very old New Orleans traditional jazz, big band hits, bebop, Latin/Jazz to funky New Orleans street beat or second line type songs in a very creative and highly improvised setting.
Jazz and Latin groove infused the Garden District Band performs from the Classic American Songbook with Swing, Ballads, Bossa Nova, Samba and quasi-rhumba styles with a unique New Orleans feel. They perform in the style of the incredible, great, swinging piano trios such as Oscar Peterson, Bill Evans, Gene Harris, Ahmad Jamal, Wynton Kelly, McCoy Tyner and many others. If you like these artists, you will love this group.
Great, Intense Music
As Hansen says, "We enjoy performing with a groove, dynamics and the highest level of musicality we can reach."
"New and interesting arrangements on older standards is a specialty."
