Max-Tone & Hot-Tempo (ITA)



As every hep cat and kitten knows – there’s no school like old school… and old school “honking blues” is the inspiration and core of Max-Tone & Hot-Tempo’s scathing sounds that bounce up, down, and all around between West Coast Blues, Jump Blues, Swing and Boogie. With Max Baj on guitar and vocals, Ermano Dardanelli on sax, Francesca Nicassio on piano, Gianluca Martini on double bass, and Andrea Gavuzzo on drums, here you have the perfect blend of explosive rhythms, blues beats and killer 40’s & 50’s vintage style!

Bringing you jumpin’ sounds from guitar gods like Tiny Grimes, Pete Lewis and Teddy Bunn, and saxophone sexiness from Big Jay McNeely, Lester Young and Louis Jordan, Max-Tone & Hot-Tempo are just wild about Old School Jump Blues and Rock’n’Roll! Whether you’re a regular rug-cutter or you have two-left feet, their West Coast Blues vibes will get your feet a-tapping and your hands a-clapping!
