Ralph Litwin and The Band With a Thousand Names

"...also plays a thousand styles and includes at various time a thousand members. Dixieland, old-time, ragtime, Delta blues, Western swing, bluegrass, and newgrass all find a home in Litwin's hands, as saxophones, tubas, and clarinets join forces with banjos, Dobros, and mandolins. It's the rare band that can handle romantic stringband waltzes, novelty jazz tunes, and Robbie Robertson songs with equal flair, leaving a unique stamp on all. These vaudevillian frolics are delivered with such sheer joy and exuberance, it reminds you why you like music in the first place." - Dirty Linen
