Jeff Sanford's Cartoonjazz Band Jazz Band
From the 30's thru the 50's, swinging Big Band ensembles played music that was not only great to dance to, it also worked as the musical accompaniment for most of the animated shorts of the era. Jeff Sanford, musician, band leader, music teacher, collector of music charts and instruments, rediscovered the music of Raymond Scott, the master composer who forever influenced the frenetic hyper-percussive style so typical of cartoon music.  He found copies of original charts and orchestrations in the dusty archives of Oakland's Paramount Theater then called on the expertise of the region's best jazz players to form the Cartoon Jazz Orchestra.  Wonderful cartoon music didn't stop with Raymond Scott. Sanford says the most requested song is composer Danny Elfman's theme for The Simpsons.  It's music that Sanford says fits in with our modern era to a tee --"it's percussive and it's complicated and fun at the same time."

Jeff Sanford has performed with Regina Carter, Stan Getz, Tootie Heath, Steve Allen, the Ink Spots, the SF Symphony, Michael Feinstein, and Eddie Fisher.  In addition to his Orchestra he regularly performs with the Martini Brothers, The Golden Gate Park Band, Rudy Salvini's big Band, Joel Abramson.
