Popular favourites at Wakefield Jazz, Pigfoot burst onto the London scene in 2013 with their highly original take on New Orleans jazz 21st Century Acid Trad, recorded live at the Vortex. At their ongoing Vortex residency ‘Pigfoot Play’ they have been extending their repertoire in all directions, with gigs dedicated to Opera, Motown, Elvis, Bacharach and the music of 1972, all spontaneously transformed by the band’s wild musicality and wry humour.

There is all the musical intelligence you would expect from these four superb jazz musicians, along with a whole lot of heart and joy. There is also an admirably subversive glint in every eye. Damn, do these guys have a good time!” – Peter Bacon, thejazzbreakfast.com
