Special Edition: The New Orleans Jazz Vipers

Isamu Jordan / The Spokesman-Review

This is the core band that spawned all of these 11 New Orleans jazz musicians. Every one of them was at one time, and will always remain, a Viper. They best capture the neo-trad-punk-jazz style of New Orleans swing music that brings together ‘20s and ‘30s era jazz without the use of a drummer. Instead it falls back on washboard, upright bass and acoustic guitar to keep the rhythm, driving the songs hard enough that you wouldn’t look for a missing drummer unless you knew it wasn’t there. This is another installment of our Think Swing! New Orleans Jazz Festival podcast.
