JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2008 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Sliding Hammers at the Rochester Jazz Festival

The Sliding Hammers have been here twice before and they were appearing in different locations three nights in a row this year. They are very popular. For me two trombones are already one too many but they make the best of it by playing everything from sambas to straight ahead bebop. One of the sisters now sings and she wrote a beautiful slow song called, "My Wedding Shoes" that they peformed here. - photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
