“Hot can be cool, and cool can be hot, and each can be both. But hot or cool, man, jazz is jazz.”- Louis Armstrong
Welcome to our website!
The Mission City Hot Rhythm Cats specialize in early, classic jazz, exemplified by many of the well-known masters such as Louis Armstrong, Ferdinand "Jelly Roll" Morton, Jack Teagarden, Bix Beiderbecke and Joe "King" Oliver. We also include a good helping of Irving Berlin, Hoagy Carmichael, Cole Porter and Jerome Kern, along with many other composers of timeless standards.
