These samples were recorded by our popular Trio de Jazz. These songs and over 1,000 others can also be performed by larger Jazzopoly ensembles.
I Love Lucy - 31 seconds (flugelhorn, double bass, guitar)
We all loved Lucy, and Harold Adamson's theme music for this much-loved television show lives again in Jazzopoly's samba-esque interpretation. Lovely to dance to or as background for conversation, it's a popular choice for most playlists.
Have You Met Miss Jones - 34 seconds (cornet, double bass, guitar)
This Rodgers/Hart tune has been recorded by many popular artists including Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald. It was recently made popular for a whole new generation as the signature tune for the film Bridget Jones' Diary. A nice swing standard, suitable for most function playlists.
Nature Boy - 55 seconds (flugelhorn, double bass, guitar)
Written by Eden Ahbez, made famous by Nat King Cole and reprised in Baz Luhrmann's Moulin Rouge, this much-loved tune lends itself well to convivial background music or a bit of a twirl around the dance floor. Ours is a bossa nova style interpretation of the classic.
Ain't No Sunshine - 45 seconds (muted trumpet, double bass, guitar)
This Bill Withers classic has stood the test of time and trend, having been covered by 34 different artists (that we know of!) in a range of musical styles. We've recorded the song in a Miles Davis-inspired vein, bringing a bit of bluesy funk to a range of occasions.
Take the A Train - 35 seconds (cornet, double bass, guitar)
A Duke Ellington signature piece, this song was written by Billy Strayhorn based on the subway directions he used to get to Ellington's office in Harlem. From such humble beginnings emerged one of the most memorable tunes of its time. Its medium swing tempo is an upbeat crowd pleaser.
Polkadots and Moonbeams - 1 minute, 15 seconds (flugelhorn, double bass, guitar)
Written by van Heusen and Burke, this beautiful song was made famous by Frank Sinatra and remains one of the most popular ballads of all time. It is often requested for bridal dances or to create a dreamy ambiance for quiet times. It's such a lovely piece that we couldn't bear to shorten the demo clip any further!
