CALL IT “RED HOT JAZZ”

“Bria Skonberg call her music Hot Jazz and here is certainly no one hotter than 31-year-old Bria Skonberg on the trumpet.”

“And yes, this music is your grandfather's jazz with tunes from the 1920s and 30s made famous by the likes of Jelly Roll Morton, Sidney Bechet and Louis Armstrong. For Bria Skonberg, this music should probably be called Red Hot Jazz.”

“Skonberg brings a vibrant new energy to these historic melodies that their authors would gladly embrace. She is a triple-threat artist excelling as trumpeter, jazz vocalist and composer. Her original music easily fits into what we expect of Trad or Traditional Jazz but with a contemporary flair. Close your eyes while listening to her music and it is not difficult to imagine that Satchmo is playing right alongside. - Nicholas F. Mondello, All About Jazz
