The Unsung Jazz Geniuses of Prohibition with The Ghost Train Orchestra

Jazz Through the Looking Glass: The Hot Jazz Age
presented with Catskill Jazz Factory and the New York Hot Jazz Festival


Trumpeter Brian Carpenter leads the inspired Ghost Train Orchestra - a little big band renowned for performing almost-forgotten musical gems - in a concert of the unearthed works of the lesser-known and rarely-heard composers and band leaders that served as fixtures of the dance halls, speakeasies, and nightclubs of the late prohibition-era years of the Southside of Chicago and Harlem.
