A fitting name for a band that plays traditional New Orleans-jazz and that have been assembled across generations and borders.

The "rhythm kings" were started in 2007 after a initiative from trombone-player Kristoffer Kompen. The band consists of a wonderful mix of both seasoned young-and-promising jazz-musicians who have made made themselves strongly noted in a number of contexts within traditional jazz. In the words of NRK Jazz; "Union Rhythm Kings is a swinging Swedish-Norwegian alliance spanning all generations. All 6 musicians are born 100 years too late and are most comfortable with the jazz of the 1920's."
