THIS WEEK'S BAND: Nirav Sanghani’s Pacific Six featuring Josh Collazo
Led by longtime musician and swing dancer Nirav Sanghani, Nirav Sanghani’s Pacific Six plays tight arrangements of early jazz and swing tunes for dancers and more. Their repertoire includes transcriptions of small group swing recordings by Benny Goodman, Johnny Hodges, Roy Eldridge, and Coleman Hawkins, alongside adaptations of big band numbers from Chick Webb and Count Basie. Another great band for Lindy and Bal!

Josh Collazo is a Los Angeles-based drummer who specializes in playing 1930’s/40’s jazz and swing. In addition to drumming, Josh has been writing and arranging original jazz compositions for his own group, the Candy Jacket Jazz Band, which just released a new album of traditional jazz & swing music in 2017 and, more recently, played at Swingin’ at the Savoy 2018.
