The Temperance Seven


Perennial favourite of co-conspirator Shadrac Blintz, the Temperance Seven are the quintessential British tea-room jazz ensemble. Whimsical, ironic, light-hearted - they were the fore-runners of Viv Stanshaw and the Bonzo Dog Do Dah Band. Well worth a listen, their distinctive sound will grow on you with repeated listenings.
