Swiss Yerba Buena
Swiss Yerba Buena Creole Rice Jazz Band
Founded in 1999 by eight musicians passionate about jazz, Swiss Yerba Buena is a unique jazz band based in Switzerland. They play old jazz forgotten by the mainstream media, particularly reviving musical compositions from the 20’s and 30’s originally played by Duke Ellington, King Oliver and Fletcher Henderson. They update and transform these traditional pieces with great improvisation and original interpretation.
The name of the band is deliberately very long to be instantly recognisable on posters – it’s so much lengthier than any other band name.
