A New Orleans party courtesy of The Old Jelly Rollers…

The Old Jelly Rollers are a group of seven young jazz musicians and musical educators from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance.

A little clip of the antics that went down at the Trinity Laban staff party earlier – such a joy to share the festive spirit with such a fun bunch! X

The Old Jelly Rollers were formed to celebrate both the centennial anniversary of the first ever jazz recording and the birth of George Webb (considered by many as the father of the British traditional jazz movement) in 1917. By making jazz education accessible to a wider audience, they wish to protect this rich heritage and promote arts education. Traditional Jazz and the music of New Orleans is an often understated part of the DNA of music in the UK. From Ken Colyer and his Jazz men in the 1950s, to Stax and the Jazz revivals of the sixties and eighties and even the Rolling Stones; New Orleans Jazz has had a powerful influence on music in the UK.
