I have just read a tweet about the new CD of a band with the rare name Zapf Dingabats on twitter. This sounded interesting and I visited their homepage and listened to the five tracks there.
Drawing on influences such as Jelly Roll Morton, Bob Wills, Louis Armstrong, and the black string bands from the South (Mississippi Sheiks, Charlie McCoy), the Zapf Dingbats deliver a unique arrangements of traditional jazz, blues, and folk tunes.
These are the members of Zapf Dingbats:
- David Bandrowski [ guitar, vocals ]
- Chris Clarke [ mandolin, vocals ]
- Dane Terry [ harmonica, vocals ]
- Doug Walker [ upright bass ]
I have compiled a playlist with some videos with the Zapf Dingbats Band:
