Vintage Swing Jazz

The Jenny Finn Orchestra plays the vintage danceable swing jazz of the 20’s-40’s with a unique blend of sophisticated vocals, alto sax/flute, archtop and gypsy guitars supported by upright bass and percussion. The JFO is a group of jazz-inspired musicians whose love for these depression-era tunes is enhanced by their eclectic backgrounds that range from straight ahead jazz to jump blues to avant-garde to rock & roll to pop.
