The Strutters with vocalist Meloney Collins celebrate the 100th anniversary of recorded jazz. Vinyl Jazz-A Century Celebration is a potpourri of jazz, pop and R&B songs like Gershwin’s Rhapsody In Blue, Ellington’s Mood Indigo and All Or Nothing At All recorded by Frank Sinatra. Melodies that shaped our musical landscape.
