Sweet As Sugar Jazz Band is one of my favorite kinds of music to play.  In our quintet we have my woodwinds, Sax, Clarinet and Flute, and we have a Trumpet, Harmonica, Bass, Drums, Guitar, and a bunch of vocalists!  The music swings and jumps with the New Orleans type of "Playing Together" that just makes you want to dance!!
