From Charles Gayle's alter ego, Streets the Clown, to the music performed by the Kamikaze Ground Crew for the Flying Karamazov Brothers, from the countless jazz renditions of the iconi themes that Nino Rota wrote for Federico Fellini's movies to the equally countless jazz tunes inspired by circus acts... Jazz and Circus have a long history of cross-pollination.
This mixtape is a fun-filled companion to the two parts of our show "A Night at the Jazz Circus!" [click for Part 1 and Part 2]
