Friday, August 11 at 8: Arts Garage presents the Glyn Dryhurst Dixieland Jazz Band. “Dixieland” is the name given to the style of jazz performed by early New Orleans jazz musicians. The name is a reference to the “Old South,” specifically anything south of the Mason-Dixon line. Dixieland, which was developed in New Orleans, is one of the earliest styles of jazz music. The style combined earlier brass band marches, French Quadrilles, biguine, ragtime, and blues with collective, polyphonic improvisation. While instrumentation and size of bands can be very flexible, the “standard” band consists of a “front line” of trumpet (or cornet), trombone, and clarinet, with a “rhythm section” of at least two of the following instruments: guitar or banjo, string bass or tuba, piano, and drums. Not often heard today, a handful of dedicated bands keep the music alive. The Glyn Dryhurst Dixieland Band is South Florida’s leading band dedicated to this genre of music.
Al Kanovsky wrote a review of a performance of the band at the Riverwalk Jazz Brunch for “Jazz and Blues Florida.” He writes: “Have you ever sat through three sets of music and knew every title, melody and even the lyrics? It happened to me yesterday at the Riverwalk JAZZ Brunch in Ft. Lauderdale. The band was the Glyn Dryhurst Quintet….The band opened with “Perdido”. Glyn playing muted trumpet. Each took a turn and then traded 4’s. They took it out with the associated bop riff. There may be only a few of you who remember tunes like “JaDa”. My older sisters danced to that way, way back in the day….By the way, Danny Burger is no youngster, but he was the kid of this group. “Bye Bye Blackbird” has dancers up. Some young, some not so, and a couple of them of my generation…. The crowd insists on “ONE MORE!” What else but Duke and “Satin Doll”. Thanks to all the musicians who brought back all the wonderful memories of days long gone by.”
