“Backyard is as authentic as can be. Listening is a joy and clear window into the essence of the early jazz era.” Budd Kopman, All About Jazz
Given the knowledge of the era and the authenticity of performance, Poppleton’s latest release, Back In Your Own Backyard is a real delight. It's sure to surprise lovers of early jazz that such is happening Down Under, as well as win over “newbies” to the music ... It would take an extremely jaded heart not to smile and tap your feet, much less dance around the room, to Greg Poppleton.
