Vintage jazz is their weapon: The Hot Teapots
“Home Recorded Delicatessen” is the title of the latest, delightful album Hot Teapots album, an Italian band that we discovered during the Jammin’ for New Orleans days and that makes vintage jazz with passion.
“Oti Poti” (as their friends call them) were born as buskers on the initiative of singer and guitarist Michele Bertoldi and some members of the Original Perdido Jazz Band. The ensemble draws on the music of Louisiana and New Orleans during the beginning of the last century, including pre-war blues and early jazz.
