Make them like we like them.
As simple as it sounds, that's essentially the attitude of Rondette Jazz. Ian and Adam believe that a recording and visual esthetic was achieved during the height of jazz's popularity that helped to define the artform. The goal of Rondette Jazz is to make modern day records with those same sensibilities and a dedication to the little details is how we get there.
We love soulful music that swings. We love the blues. We love jazz!
