Album Notes
Whether recreating the classic 1930s sound of Django Reinhardt and the Hot Club de France or playing their own compositions, what remains absolutely at the heart of their approach is their commitment to the Manouche style.

Hot Club inspired bands are far from a rarity on the UK jazz scene, but what marks out Djangologie as something special is that way in which they take up the original spirit and breathe fresh life into it, with a mix of tunes from the '30s and original compositions drawing on the tradition - this is inspired homage rather than deferential homage.

Noted for the way that they maintain the swinging spirit of the great Reinhardt – Grappelli outfits but without trying to be a carbon copy.
Firmly rooted in the Hot Club sound of the swing era, all four members of the band have a detailed acquaintance with the gypsy jazz tradition.
They use this knowledge not just to recreate classics from the past but to apply the approach to a growing book of excellent originals played with virtuoso brio by four of the finest exponents of the style,

“ Djangologie evoke the authentic sounds of Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli ”
(Desmond Carrington, BBC Radio 2)

“ A spirited celebration of the Hot Club ”
(The Times)

" Hot club at it's best "
(Bebop Spoken Here - jazz blog)
