The Sardines' sound—wartime Paris via New Orleans—is steeped in hot jazz, salty stride piano and the kind of music Louis Armstrong, Django Reinhardt and Waller used to make: straight-up, foot-stomping jazz. The band's jazz roots run deep and intertwine with French influences via their frontwoman, "Miz Elizabeth" Bougerol, who was born and raised in Paris. Members of the Sardines collective have worked with genre greats including Rufus Wainwright, Sufjan Stevens, Lauren Ambrose, Nicholas Payton, Kurt Elling, the New York and Jerusalem Philharmonics, Slavic Soul Party and the Williamsburg Salsa Orchestra.
