Ninety and Still Swinging!

Recorded Live at Yoshi's, Oakland CA

May 10, 1999

The Record's Concept:

As the last of the original generation of traditional jazz players and senior member of the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Narvin feels an obligation to pass the traditional music torch to today’s youth who will carry on this American musical cultural art form into the next century.

Ninety and Still Swinging marks the first time Narvin has played with a "youth" band where no musician is over 30 years old.  The music is inspired and proves that traditional jazz is in good hands in the future.

Who's on the Record:

The youthful members of this band are some of the country’s best young musicians:

Clint Baker, 26, trombone. Multi-instrumentalist and leader of the Clint Baker New Orleans Jazz Band, has performed numerous times at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.

Evan Christopher, 28, clarinet. Former member of the Jim Cullum Jazz Band, who has appeared regularly on the syndicated NPR radio show, Live From The Landing, San Antonio, Texas.

Paul Cosentino, 30, piano. Leader of the Boilermaker Jazz Band, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, who has appeared numerous times at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.

Marc Caparone, 25, trumpet. Leader of the Southern California Elysian Fields Orchestra.

Tom Wilson, 26, bass. Member of the Clint Baker Jazz Band for five years.

Jason Hansen, 26, drums. Leader of the funk band, Verso, and member of the Clint Baker New Orleans Jazz Band since he was 14 years old.
