Jimmy Mazzy and Friends

  • Jazz
  • Trad

Jimmy Mazzy and Friends return to Passim after their sold-out show last month. Jimmy is an internationally recognized traditional jazz banjo virtuoso and singer. Recently elected to the American Banjo Museum Hall of Fame, Jimmy plays in a unique and inventive style, and his vocals are at turns plaintive and torrid. He is joined by longtime colleagues Jeff Hughes (cornet), Craig Ball (clarinet), Bob Barta (guitars), and Albie Bernard (tuba).  An afternoon of ballads, blues, and hot tunes!

Jimmy Mazzy

  • Banjo
  • Jazz
  • Trad

Jimmy Mazzy enjoys iconic status as both a banjoist and vocalist on the American jazz scene. For more than forty years, this consummate musician has delighted followers of traditional jazz with his uniquely lyrical banjo style and his wonderfully haunting vocals. He is featured on more than 30 albums, many of them on the famous Stomp Off label including the Paramount Jazz Band and his own Jimmy Mazzy & Friends. In a New York Times review of Jimmy and Eliโ€™s Stomp Off recording, Shake It Down, critic John S. Wilson wrote: โ€œMr. Mazzy sings with husky-voiced intensity and a sentimental enthusiasm that sometimes suggests a cross between Ted Lewis and Clancy Hayes. His banjo-playing is relaxed and flowing, providing light lines that help the tuba rise up and shuffle around.โ€
