Now that many great musicians from the swing and bebop era are no longer among us, it's good to know that there are so-called revival bands that keep alive the musical legacy of jazz legends in an authentic way. 4BEAT6 is such a group. With David Lukacs in the front line, 4BEAT6 mainly performs the music of Benny Goodman, the clarinetist who led a groundbreaking sextet in the thirties and forties, which included pioneers like guitarist Charlie Christian, vibraphonist Lionel Hampton and pianist Fletcher Henderson. 4BEAT6 (David Lukacs: clarinet, Jacco Griekspoor: vibraphone, Martien Oster: guitar, Joop van Deuren: piano, Frans van Geest: bass, Barry Olthof: drums) revives the period and includes personal observations of the musicians. On the album 4BEAT6, the sextet plays lively interpretations of enduring classics like Airmail Special and Flyin' Home.
