Hounds : Bell End Blues
The Hounds are a 7-piece modern traditional swinging jazz group made up of Perth's next generation of "young jazz lions". Regular favourites at local jazz clubs and festivals, the hounds pride themselves on their killer live show, delivering high energy performances that feed off the septet's ready humour, raucous group improvisation, multiple soloists and driving rhythm section. In recent times they have turned their attention to creating original music in the style and spirit of the traditional jazz masters but with a modern jazz twist. Bell End Blues features original music from Banjo player and band-leader, Mace Francis and Bassist Wayne Slater.
