Firecracker Jazz Band is proud to announce the release of their fifth studio recording on February 25, 2020 - Mardi Gras! Return To The Twenties is a rip-roaring return to form for the seminal Asheville hot jazz band. Recorded in an old church at the world-famous Echo Mountain Studio in Asheville, NC and mixed and engineered by Grammy winner Julian Dreyer, the crisp sounds of this record will get you moving and grooving to the notoriously high-octane Firecracker rhythm section. Featuring old standards of the genre (Original Dixieland One-Step and Buddy Bolden’s Blues) and brand new originals in the style of danceable up-beat New Orleans swing (Leo’s Lion and Bad Deal), this new release will see the band blaze a path through the new decade and to a venue near you.
