The Candy Jacket Jazz Band is a nod to the past while also pressing forward with fresh, original compositions. Los Angeles based drummer - Josh Collazo - has been playing in traditional jazz and swing bands since he was 18 years old. Over the last 17 years of performing with various bands like Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, Jonathan Stout & his Campus Five, the Carl Sonny Leyland Trio, and Dave Stuckey & the Hot House Gang - a chord struck inside him to begin composing new, original "classic" jazz and swing music. He enlisted long-time musical companion, Albert Alva, to begin wading through the pile of songs that had been tucked away and to co-arrange the album. This album was created with the Lindy Hop & Balboa dance community in mind by making sure to keep the songs shorter in length like they were back in the 1930's & 1940's. ​The Candy Jacket Jazz Band is comprised of some of the finest traditional jazz musicians in the Los Angeles area: Albert Alva (tenor sax), Nate Ketner (clarinet/alto sax), Bryan Shaw (trumpet), Dan Weinstein (trombone), Chris Dawson (piano), Seth Ford-Young (upright bass), Jonathan Stout (guitar), & Josh Collazo - (drums)
