Album Notes
An upbeat collection of vintage favorites, gypsy jazz classics, and a few originals thrown in for good measure, Swing Set will lift your spirits and get your toes tapping. Inspired by the spirit of the great gypsy jazz violinist Stephane Grappelli, violinist Josie Quick’s melodic improvisations are playfully lively and lyrical. Award winning composer Tom Carleno deftly maneuvers his way around his guitar, giving the music that unmistakable swinging gypsy flavor. Rounding out the ensemble is bassist Blake Eberhard, and drummer Christian Teele, both are sought after musicians known for their mastery of their instruments.

When I discovered jazz violin the first two violinists I listened to were Jean-Luc Ponty and Stephane Grappelli. These two musicians are on different sides of the jazz violin spectrum, yet both have had a huge influence on me. When Tom and I started adding some standards to our set list, the Hot Club style of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli just happened naturally. Some of their tunes became part of our regular repertoire and we began to put our own mark on the gypsy jazz sound. It became inevitable that we produce a recording of these wonderful, classic songs. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do playing them!

“Perpetual Motion simply delivers good music that will leave you whistling.” -Bobby Bensley, Riff Magazine
