GRAND STREET STOMPERS
GRAND ST. STOMPERS is a New York-based New Orleans-style Hot Jazz band, reviving and refreshing the music of the 1920s onward for today's listeners, swing dancers, and music fans. With the talent and experience of NYC's top traditional jazz singers and players, they have delighted audiences at jazz clubs, festivals, ballrooms, and speakeasies around the country. The Stompers are loved not only for their authentic performances of vintage jazz tunes, but also for their jazzy versions of songs from classical music,, film, and even pop music, as well as their own exciting originals. Grand St Stompers feature an exceptional period jazz vocalist, Tamar Korn. The Stompers' leader, trumpeter GORDON AU, called a musician "comfortable in any idiom" by music writer Michael Steinman, embodies the fusion of tradition and modernity that defines the Grand St. Stompers. During a fellowship residency with Monk Institute, he performed with no less than 23 Grammy Award winners, including Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Chaka Khan, George Benson, Ellis Marsalis, Benny Golson, and Terence Blanchard.
