On today’s show I speak with the bandleader, guitarist and banjoist from The Cangelosi Cards, Jake Sanders. Here’s what I said about the Cards several years, ago and I stand by this statement now:
“The Cangelosi Cards are one of the best bands I’ve seen anywhere. They have a great live show, perfect for dancing! I envy any one who has not yet seen them because you now have the chance to see them for the first time! They keep it strictly real, playing traditional Old Time style jazz, but continue to see at as a living tradition- and as such bring in influences from ‘outside’ the cannon, such as country, blues, and early popular music. Tamar is an amazing singer and the level of musicianship is brilliant, bring your dancing shoes.”
Jake catches us up on what The Cards have been up to, including tours of Europe and Asia, a studio album and a brand new EP. Definitely worth picking up their records, great stuff! Check them out at www.losmusicosviajeros.net .
