Hoppin’ John Orchestra’s Reunion Days hits the sweet spot between jazz, blues, soul, ska, and swing. From the festive Mardi Gras spirit of “King Cake” to the Latin groove of “El Sueno” to the pop charm of “Hollywood,” this superb album has it all: alluring female vocals, a masterful horn section, pumpin’ piano, and a propulsive rhythm section. It’s addicting!
