“It’s not easy to categorize the music of the Squirrel Nut Zippers, except that it’s hot.” NPR

Combine high-energy showmanship with elements of gypsy jazz, honky-tonk blues and witty swing overtones, and you’ll have Squirrel Nut Zippers. In honor of the 20th anniversary of Hot, the band’s top-charting fast-and-loose ode to hot jazz, SNZ creator Jimbo Mathus and founding drummer Chris Phillips have enlisted leading musicians from New Orleans to serve up the band’s unique musical flavor, which owes its roots to that city. “Hot is exuberant, gin house swing without apologies and it rocks without pretense,” raves Pitchfork.com. Swing back to the 1920s and ’30s and salute late-night speakeasy jazz with one of the most vivacious alternative bands of their time.
