Black Cat Jazz is inspired by the music created in New Orleans by musicians who came to prominence during the traditional jazz revival period of the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. As our starting point, we select tunes that were played by Bunk Johnson, Punch Miller, George Lewis, Emmanuel Paul, the Humphrey brothers, Kids: Ory, Howard, Clayton and Thomas, amongst others too numerous to mention. We attempt to recreate the atmosphere of their great performances without directly copying or presenting a "museum piece". We emphasise ensemble playing as opposed to individual instrument solos and wherever possible we play without amplification except for announcements and vocals. These are the practices of the musicians we seek to emulate, and we find that this produces an authentic and musical sound where all the instruments find their own natural balance.
