The Maple Leaf Seven, Vermont's own traditional jazz band, provides traditional "dixieland" and classic swing throughout the northeast for jazz lovers and dancers. Maple Leaf Seven features traditional and contemporary interpretations of jazz standards on clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, piano, bass and drums.
Maple Leaf Seven was founded in 1977 by jazz lovers in St. Johnsbury, VT. Their newest CD, "Sweet Jesus" was released in 2010 and features spirituals, hymns and gospel numbers performed in the band's inimitable swinging style. Maple Leaf Seven's earlier CD, "Tappin' Time" is also available and includes traditional jazz tunes along with swing numbers. Sample tracks can be heard on the band's web site at www.stjjazz.org.
