Small Time Napoleon is the combination of new ideas and old sounds. Their interest in the jazz standards of the swing era shine through in their voices, writing and playing, while their ear for new sounds and ideas constantly drives them forward. The product of this pairing is what Insider Louisville has called “a mad-science blend of Western swing, hot jazz and folk,” which is “already starting to gel into something wholly singular.” The band has recently released their third collection, “Too Big To Fail,” which has received positive feedback from listeners and critics alike. Laura Shine, assistant program director/onair host at Louisville WFPK, says of the band, “Small Time Napoleon is poised for big time things. They are truly one of the most unique and exciting bands I’ve seen come out of Louisville in a very long time. Their music and instrumentation and vocals are exquisite!”
