THIS WEEK'S BAND: Tin Cup Serenade
With influences from Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Muddy Waters, Tom Waits, Charlie Parker, Bessie Smith, Django Reinhardt, and Hank Williams, Tin Cup Serenade performs both classic and original swing, jazz, blues, and Americana. The band has an approach to improvising that goes back to the Basie big band of the 1930s--wherein horn players improvise behind the soloist--although with Tin Cup, it’s voice and horns creating spontaneous harmonies on the fly. The result is a timeless sound all their own. Tin Cup is led by Rolf Wilkinson on guitar and vocals, with core regulars Larry Leight on trombone, Pete Cornell on baritone, tenor, alto, and soprano saxophones, and clarinet, Safa Shokrai on bass, and Eric Garland on drums.
