Album Notes
The award winning Ameranouche trio features the melodic virtuosity of guitarist Richard Sheppard, the vehement rhythm chops of guitarist Ryan Flaherty and the dulcet low end of upright bassist Xar Adelberg. Together, this rip-roaring ensemble is a super force of hot acoustic jazz, sometimes reffered to as hot swing or Gypsy jazz. The contrast of other influences like American Soul music, Flamenco and Bop are what give the fast fingered trio such a recognizable sound. All played on acoustic instruments, the music is rhythmic, vigorous and strangely elegant. It’s hard to believe only three people are creating such a big sound.

Ameranouche formed in 2004 and has played venues from the prestigious JVC Newport Jazz Festival and Djangofest Northwest, to busking and club gigs throughout New England, the Mid Atlantic and the South, including tours through Midwest and Southern regions.

"New Hampshire's own Ameranouche, has created an album of incredibly inspiring, and very interesting music. The tunes that make up "Homage A Manouche" are smooth, tasteful, and absolutely swinging. They claim it's in the spirit of Django Reinhardt, and why not? He's the original, and the master of gypsy jazz. Richard "Shepp" Sheppard has composed an arsenal of his own original compositions, while tossing in a couple of cover tunes for good measure (Reinhardt does, in fact, show up). Controlling the mind-blowing lead duties, Sheppard is backed by Ryan Flaherty on rhythm guitar, and Benjamin Wood on the steady, grooving contrabass (or, bull fiddle as they call it). The latter two met and studied at Berklee College of Music. Sheppard is an aggressor on the guitar, really taking it to its limits. Many of the tunes showcase his ability to make that guitar talk. He forcibly makes the strings resonate, and then he dances across the entirety of the fret board in order to get Ameranouche's gypsy jazz sound. You can tell he's had many years of practice. Not to mention, he has taken his talents afar performing with such legendary musicians as Taj Mahal and Hot Tuna, among others."
