The ever-popular quartet from Paris claim, with justice, that they play jazz classics and 1920s/1930s songs by the likes of Hoagy Carmichael and Walter Donaldson with plenty of swing, but also a touch of Gallic flair which extends far beyond the tricolour in the sousaphone. Formed in 2004, with highly experienced musicians, the Stompers are great entertainers, committed to making each performance ‘exceptional or unforgettable.’
Sadly, since their latest appearance at Birmingham in 2018, Les Zauto Stompers have announced the death of clarinettist Jens Kromer who has, according to the band’s website, ‘folded his umbrella’. The Birmingham Jazz Festival joins in paying tribute to a musician who, like all his colleagues in the band, brought enormous enjoyment to festival-goers.
