Sweetly eerie goose bump blues.

About the Album

Our sophomore album Western Soul is due for release on March 9th and we are releasing our haunting arrangement of St. James Infirmary in anticipation. Here is an apt description by the site PopMatters - "Pereira thrives as a lead singer and frontman handling this arrangement, never quite being swallowed by the grand tinges of rock and gospel that they invoke into the song. Instead, the entire band delivers their take on "St. James Infirmary" with a sort of slinking and dark agency. Their cover will be available on Western Soul come March 9th."

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
