During this performance interview with The Greyboy Allstars, Jazz24/KPLU jazz host, Abe Beeson, called their latest CD (Inland Emperor) ‘the party album of 2013.’

The Greyboy Allstars’ reputation as a party/dance band is well-earned.

 

They’ve been playing terrific jazz/funk all over the world for almost 20 years, staying so busy they seldom have time to record.

In fact, Inland Emperor is only the 5 in all their years together… so for fans of the band, each Greyboy Allstars release is an event.

During their visit to KPLU, the played 2 songs from the new CD (the title track and Old Crow) and the title track from their 2007 CD, What Happened To TV?

If you think jazz music and dance music are two different things, The Greyboy Allstars are here to change your mind.
