Jazz has always been a musical style that is genuinely American. It has deep roots in the New Orleans Dixieland jazz tradition, a tradition that speaks to the struggles and joys of the common person.
The standard Dixieland band included a front line of trumpet/cornet, trombone and clarinet. The rhythm section consisted of drums, banjo and tuba, In December of 2019, the St. Augustine Concert Band Dixieland Combo debuted under the direction of Jim Jenkins. The Dixieland Combo will be performing Live in Lincolnville on Thursday, May 7 and with the St. Augustine Concert Band on May 15 and May 17. Details are on the SACB website at staugband.org.
