Roots 66
a good old-fashioned American MUSICAL road-trip

Keri Chryst has teamed up with acclaimed Jazz and Blues guitarist Jumpin' Jeff Hoffman to take you on a musical journey across their native land — retracing the vestiges of the legendary Route 66.

It winds from Keri & Jeff’s Sweet Home Chicago - to Jeff’s second home — L.A. —
the City of Angels. The duo also make a few detours along the way... after all, no musical American road-trip would be complete without swinging through other blues and jazz hot-spots on Duke Ellington's A Train through New York, New York, or ridin' down to Ray Charles' Georgia to name a few...

A fun way to bone up on your U.S. geography, while learning a little more about the story behind the songs... Get your kicks, on Route 66!
