Performed in era appropriate attire. The Platinum selling group has sold over three million albums to-date, with their watershed album,Hot (1996), making them a household name. Recorded in the heat of New Orleans, fueled by a smoldering mix of booze and a youthful hunger to unlock the secrets o fold-world jazz, this pivotal release was just the beginning for the band.
