Glenn Crytzer brings his Quartet to Tri-State, playing music from the Jazz Age and the Swing Era - "Vintage American Jazz". Glenn draws on the broad repertoire of styles of jazz that were performed prior to World War II. This includes the earliest jazz from New Orleans around the turn of the 20th century, and the styles that were part of the gradual morphing into the "hot jazz" style played by the dance orchestras (early big bands) and combos of the 1920s. People associate these sounds with prohibition, speakeasies, gangsters, the Jazz Age, and the Great Gatsby. Glenn's All-Stars quartet recreates a small-group combo with accomplished vintage jazz specialists. Their superlative musicianship and unbridled swing is fueled by each musician's genuine love for playing pre-war jazz, making every performance one to remember.

Manouche 5 debuts with Tri-State! This Philadelphia based quintet performs gypsy-jazz influenced standards and popular music similar to the original Hot Club of Paris. They became a fixture with their weekly performance at Heritage in Northern Liberties (unfortunately suspended during the pandemic). So this live-streamed performance for Tri-State is a great way to get back to making music again!
