Ryles Jazz Club
Itchy Feet plays an eclectic mix of straight-ahead jazz and hard-driving swing.
Formed in 2009, the band is a nonet with six horns, keys, bass and drums. The
band members are among Greater Boston's busiest musicians, arrangers, and educators.
The band's repertoire spans several jazz eras, incorporating a mix of styles
from swing to modern jazz. Many arrangements were adapted from those of the
big bands of Count Basie, Stan Kenton, Buddy Rich, Woody Herman and others.
Original compositions and arrangements are written
by band members David Johnson and Brian
Johnson puts a new spin on classics written by legendary jazzmen, including
Miles Davis and John Coltrane, as well as his own original compositions. Lewis
further expands the band's depth with his own arrangements and original compositions,
providing an entirely different spectrum of captivating tonalities.
