The OMC 4 Track: Big Bad Voodoo Daddy

I thought it was about time for a change of pace for the OMC 4 Track. Shake things up a bit with an often forgotten, or ignored, genre of music: Jazz. It has had a major influence on just about every type of music heard today. Nothing was safe from the old masters as they reinvented the geography of the musical world. The greats like Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, Duke Ellington, Ray Charles, and Etta James (have to show the ladies some love) were true super stars that embodied incredible talent and swagger. Strangely, when people attempt to envision jazz they see zoot suits and packed night clubs full of flappers. This is odd as this is a perfect picture of the extremely short lived swing movement.

Don’t worry readers, I’m not going to start posting up some 80 year old songs but I will introduce you to Big Bad Voodoo Daddy. Born from the small swing revival that took place in the 90’s, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy is pure big band swing worthy to have played with any of the greats. Formed by guitarist Scotty Morris and drummer Kurt Sodergrem, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy has become a full big band with trumpets, double bass, piano, saxophone, clarinet, and trombone. Now just sit back and enjoy the music or just send me the hate mail for writing this, whichever you like.
