"Half Nelson will take you on a midnight ride through the back alleys of New Orleans and the smokey Jazz dives of 1920's Harlem. From gritty Billie Holiday, to the smooth styling of Ella Fitzgerald. Add a shot of Louis Armstrong with a dash of Fats Waller and you have the energetic cocktail that is Half Nelson. Half Nelson deliver high energy, heartfelt jazz that is equally suited to a pub, jazz festival, sophisticated corporate function or an old basement speakeasy. Dance up a storm or moan the blues away, but whatever you do, do it to Half Nelson".
