Big Joe and the Dynaflows: I'm Still Swingin'
Big Joe Maher claims Louis Jordan as his main influence, but Maher's style is more reminiscent of my favorite blues singer of all time, Big Joe Turner. Like the original Big Joe, this Big Joe covers tunes that rock and swing simultaneously. Moreover, the Dynaflows are far more capable than most of the younger, more popular swing bands. I'm Still Swingin' has a New Orleans flavor as four of these 14 tunes were written by David Bartholomew. With a great bluesy horn section led by Mark "Kaz" Kazanoff, pumping piano played by Kevin McKendree, and a raucous rhythm section anchored by Big Joe on the skins, the Dynaflows swing out in fine style.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
