If you love jazz as much as us you gotta check out the Chicago based early jazz stylists The Fat Babies. Their 2013 album 18th & Racine (out on the Chicago label Delmark Records) has been on our turntable a lot this past month. The band presents 14 lesser known gems and one original composition. Undoubtedly The Fat Babies are skilled musicians but their unique approach to these wrongfully forgotten tunes resurrect the nostalgia and vibe of a era long gone. We love it and hope you'll check it out.
Oh and they perform every Tuesday at the Green Mill if ya wanna see them do their thing live!
