Topsy Chapman

The New Orleans Palm Court Jazz Café is one of the Crescent City’s historical venues for traditional jazz and its band comprises some of the city’s best musicians. Get ready for five days of great music and mesmerizing shows! The band’s line up includes some of the festival’s favorites: among them, New Orleans vocalist Topsy Chapman, whose roots are in gospel and today is an iconic vocalist in the New Orleans jazz scene, trumpeter Gregg Stafford, already in Ascona in 2014 for the Louis Armstrong homage, the fantastic drummer Jason Marsalis and master of clarinet, Sammy Rimington, English-born and today one of the Crescent City’s honorary citizens, one of the most prolific recording artists in all of jazz, with an exceptional list of collaborations.  The band, on its European tour, is led by renowned pianist Lars Edegran, a previous Grammy Award nominee for the successful musical “One mo’ Time”, which had also launched Topsy Chapman’s career in the 1980s.
