Lovely L.A. Times article on Vince Giordano and his role as what they call "Hollywood's Go-To Guy for Early Jazz."
t is abundantly clear to anyone who goes to Iguana any Monday or Tuesday evening -and you should when you are in town or nearby -that Vince and his fellow musicians are driven by their love for the jazz and the hot dance music of the 1920s and 1930s, and that they bring back the sound of that overlooked era in the most authentic manner. The performance by the band is not an excuse for a back to the past sentimental journey, but a living, dynamic demonstration that this music can be current and timely in
the 21st century. Vince and his fellow musicians understand in depth the sensibility and the historical context of the music from the 1920s and 1930s and, thus, render it as a breathing, flourishing presence for today's audiences. Indeed, "There Is A Future In The Past."
