Listen to the joyous, souldful music on this recording, and you'll hear that music composed between 1902 and 1939 can sound as fresh and exciting today as it did 100 years ago! Notice how the Boilermaker Jazz Band takes song with diverse themes, styles and rhythms, and transforms them to fit the band and their audience. The music flows effortlessly from swing to boogie woogie to a latin beat.
"Paul Cosentino's clarinet takes on a soulful, sometimes mournful, mahogany sound, which works well with the music... the outcome is an exciting, sprited, fun- filled session." -Dave Nathan, www.allaboutjazz.com
"Paul Cosentino knows his way around the clarinet... the patented vibrato and intese feeling for the music... his tone is warm and woodsy...The Boilermaker's program is a delightful mix of tunes filled with charming twists and turns... the results are uniformly top gun!"
-Cam Miller, American Rag
