Kansas Smitty's House Band, a jazz collective, is formed of some of the best young jazz musicians residing in the UK.
Part 1 with Ruben Fox - Inspired by the swinging, hedonistic atmosphere of the one American city that overcame the Great Depression. The Kansas Smitty's House Band are the fresh answer to London's booming 'speakeasy jazz' scene and are coined with 'putting the danger back into jazz'. Dave Archer, Giacomo Smith, Ruben Fox and Theon Cross of Kansas Smitty's joined us for a morning of good coffee, jazz and Christmas tunes in November. We hope to get you all into the festive spirit by delivering you some snippets of Christmas jazz from the streets of East London in the lead up to Christmas.
