ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The second release from Nashville-based The Gypsy Hombres, "Django Bells"(Memphis International) went out nationwide Christmas of 2002 to rave reviews! Check them out:

REVIEWS on "DJANGO BELLS"

Pulse Magazine Dec. 2002 Issue: "...a stroke of genius..... except for Phil Spector no muciaian has ever made a decent holiday album, until now... very musical..."

N.Y. Times, Dec. 6, 2002: "...(4 stars) ... they swivel their way toward deftly insouciant solos..."

L.A. Times Dec. 8, 2002: "(3 stars)... these players call up some distinctly swinging, Parisian resonances..."
Downbeat Magazine Dec.2002 Issue: "...(4 stars)...Tight arrangements backed with stellar musicianship deliver loads of hip humor ...great fun...."

Cincinatti Enquirer Dec. 2002: "...(4 stars)... the years best new Christmas album..."

Jazziz Dec. 2002: "...a thoroughly enjoyable mix of bluegrass, jazz, and Christmas jingles..."

Washington Post Dec. 2002: "... the year's brightest sonic bauble... this is the very merriest Christmas music."

Entertainment Weekly Dec. 2002: "... 'A'... doing songs with zip and swing...and with wit..."

Memphis Flyer: "...it's a flat-out joy..."

Arkansas Democrat Dec.1, 2002: "...(A)... one of the better instrumental collections..."

Denver Post, Dec. 15, 2002: "...clever arrangements..."

The Oregonian Dec. 13, 2002: ".... Spirited, fun and expertly played..."

Sound and Vision Dec. 12, 2002: "...The Gypsy Hombres give it to you fresh..."

Christmas Reviews.Com:"... remarkable.... acoustically unsurpassed....."

Barnes&Noble:"... lay off the eggnog when you put this disc on...a refreshingly unorthodox approach ...."

Needless to say, we are very pleased. Produced by Violinist Peter Hyrka, the album features the sounds of Justin Thompson on guitar, and David Spicher on string bass. Spicher also engineered the recording, which was done at the studio of his legendary father, fiddler Buddy Spicher - the Fiddle House.

Toe-tapping, smile inducing...
Our entire family loved Django Bells CD at our holiday gathering, and the week before. Just the right mix of whimsy and artistry, these guys amused and entertained like no other CD in our player. Many stopped, asked "What CD IS this??", and were given the "how to" for purchasing it for themselves (we don't bootleg). Also ordered "Nouveau", for later. I'm glad I tuned into NPR while riding around one day. That's where I heard the Gypsy Hombres, and first fell in love with their quirky, uplifiting work. HIGHY recommend this to anyone, as I know ANYone would enjoy it as much as we do.

Django Bells
Absolute Favorite! I love instrumental holiday CDs and this one is OUTSTANDING! The arrangements are humorous and creative without being cutesy and man, can they play! Got to see them LIVE sometime!

Awesome!
Music to enjoy all year !I love this CD!

Amelia Ketzle

so unique and cool!
I heard a bit of their music on NPR, I think, and then listened to what was available on this site, and had to buy it! It's such a great change from the typical holiday music. I liked it well enough that even though they were sold out for months surrounding Xmas, I remembered to go back and get it in the off-season. Would make an excellent gift!

Dawn Spiggle

love it!
I love the CD!!! The arrangements are so fun and the musicianship top notch. I am planning to order at least two more for 2008 x-mas gifts. Thanks for helping me complete my shopping early!
