Blue Largo – Southland Blues. Blue Largo performs timeless music that was introduced throughout a century that witnessed the development of jazz, blues, boogie-woogie, swing and jump blues.
Blue Largo plays mostly hard swinging 1940’s and 1950’s jump blues in the vein of Louis Jordan, T-Bone Walker, B.B. King, Ruth Brown, and Dinah Washington, but they also pay sincere tribute to the likes of Billie Holiday and Nat King Cole Trio as well.
Because of this, the band is readily accepted by the “swing crowd,” which is really just a lucky accident since most of the cats have been playin’ this same music since the early 1980’s, and have been loyally supported by San Diego’s most serious swing dancers, long before “swing” became fashionable.
