Sweet Ade – recorder and jazz like you’ve never heard them before

Sweet Ade is a recorder-led jazz and ragtime band, “trad” but non-traditional.  Inspired by the recorder playing of the late, great Australian multi-instrumentalist Ade Monsbrough, its eclectic repertoire includes tunes by Ade, ragtime, jazz standards and klezmer.  The band members are: Marion Lustig (recorders), Peter Mason (clarinet, tenor and soprano saxophones, vocals, recorder, ukelele), Lisette Payet (piano, vocals, ukulele, piano accordion), Chris Farley (banjo and vocals), Joe Kenyon (sousaphone), Richard Opat (washboard and drums), and Janet Arndt (vocals).
