"2 Happy Nights" is the band's 3rd CD: Live at Blå Båten, Malmö, Sweden and at Starapekarna Jazzclub, Brno, the Czech Republic in 2012.
15 swinging blue tracks, guaranteed to fire up your next party!

"Blues For Uncle Sam" is the band's 2nd - featuring Sir Jay and his swinging compadres. A smoking outfit from the South of Sweden.
Quotes on the band from Jalle Olsson's (Box Records' head honcho) writings on Sir Jay's website pre-"Blues for uncle Sam":
"This is an exciting group stationed in the very south part of Sweden (Malmö). The orchestra is made up of seasoned professional musicians with a passion for the blues and swinging jive of the `40s and `50s, and are ready to deliver a sweaty show at any given moment - they surely knows how to entertain an audience!!!!

They formed in 2001 and received fantastic reviews for their debut album "Let´s Jump Tonight!" (distribution Playground, Scandinavia). The Swedish bluesmagazine, "Jefferson", called it one of the best albums of the year [2002].

Sir J. and his gang are open for any kind of gig!!! They have played all kinds of liveshows; jazz/bluesfestivals in Scandinavia, weddings, smoky small joints….they´ve done it all. Nearly 150 shows up to this very moment. These are fine people, a little crazy though!"
