The Cartoon Jazz project was launched in 2003 at the Stanford Jazz Festival with the revival of charts from the great American composer, Raymond Scott. Jeff Sanford tracked down many charts of the famous composer, written for 13-piece bands in public archives and private collector libraries. Members of his band have since been contributing new arrangements of Scott's music as well as other jazz pieces which have been used in cartoons.
Debut House concert of Jeff Sanford's Cartoon Jazz Septet will take place this Saturday, November 13th, from 3:00 to 5:00 (Two sets with intermission). Location: The House of John & Francie Raeside, 662 Kenwyn Rd. Oakland, California (cross street is Hillgirt). Suggested Donation: $15, at the door.
