The Creole Gumbo Jazz Band was founded in 2009 by Jim Ritter, a cornetist with a long history of playing early New Orleans jazz. Other members of the band include Gary Gregg, who uses an Albert-system clarinet, Tom Holtz is on tuba, and Rick Rowe on banjo. Their music is alternately gentle and brash, inventive, and intuitive with musicians playing off of one another. Each concert is replete with tidbits of jazz history about how this music developed in New Orleans between 1900 and 1929. The tunes are mostly from the Roaring Twenties when jazz was America’s popular music. Tickets are $15 online, $20 at the door. Tickets can be bought in advance, online, at www.bit.ly//MaritimeConcerts or at the door (cash or check only).
