Ryles Jazz Club
With just piano and drums, The Claudettes (of Chicago, IL) create their own
fanatical fusion of blues, jazz and soul like Ray Charles on a punk
kick. Imagine an amped-up hybrid of Otis Spann, Ray Charles and Mose Allison,
joined by a jolly madman drummer and conducted in gonzo fashion by Raymond Scott.
File under: post-burlesque? Neo-vaudeville? Cosmic cartoon music? You've never
seen an instrumental duo like this.
Atim will be joining the Claudettes on stage on tour. The Claudettes
are Johnny Iguana
(piano) and Michael Caskey (drums);
these two have played with Junior Wells, Otis Rush, James Cotton, Buddy Guy,
Chuck Mangione...DON'T MISS THIS RARE TREAT FROM THE WINDY CITY!
