Album Notes
The Hot Club of New Orleans (Todd Duke, David Mooney: guitars, vocals. Christopher Kohl: clarinet. Matt Rhody: violin, vocals. Peter Harris, Matt Perrine, Adam Booker, bass) is overjoyed to announce the offering of its latest recording, entitled MORE! . Nine deftly arranged and passionately executed tracks of classics and originals exhibit the depth and range of the group's musicality. Fun as hell and artistically sound, this release is sure to stupefy even the most exacting listeners who have come to expect nothing less than consistently sparkling performances from the group.

Hot Club delivers 'MORE!' hot jazz.

The Hot Club of New Orleans is an alliance of sly young players boasting deft musicianship and an intimate acquaintance with the mechanics of the hot jazz and the Gypsy jazz of 1930's Paris, recast in a contemporary New Orleans setting.

On the Hot Club's delightful new, second CD "MORE!," they polish their approach on a program of mostly standards, buffing a classic genre with a fresh spin.

Guitarists Todd Duke and David Mooney, violinist Matt Rhody, clarinetist Christopher Kohl and a revolving cast of bassists that includes Peter Harris, Matt Perrine and Adam Booker adhere to the less-is-more aesthetic, allowing the natural tones of their instruments to interact without competition. Harris sets the bar high with his galloping upright bass solo in the disc's opener, "On a Slow Boat to China," which also features Mooney's unpretentious vocals. (Due to a typo on the CD jacket, Harris is incorrectly listed as the bassist on the aforementioned piece. The bassist is in fact Adam Booker. Apologies to Booker -Kohl.)

Duke takes an amusing vocal turn on Duke Ellington's "Lucky So and So." The Hot Club swoons as it renders another Ellington composition, the lush "Azalea," with gauzy romance and a sweet-tempered vocal by Mooney.

Duke and Mooney alternate fleet, single-note runs with curt rhythm chords. Strains of Eastern European gypsy jazz are apparent in the mournful violin and clarinet melody of "Bei Mir Bist du Schon." Rhody uncorks his violin for a promp through "Minor Swing." The Moody Mooney original "Stutter Step" sets up a lively clarinet solo by Kohl the spins around New Orleans tradition. Kohl's own "Natchitoches Noisette" concludes the disc by tying all the elements together.

Unadorned, acoustic swing is this Hot Club's thing, and they do it well.

New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival Redux: Hot and Modern.
By: Mark Fowler.

Why aren't these guys famous yet? The Hot Club of New Orleans excels at generating that warm, swinging drive that Django Reinhardt was famous for and at the same time transcends the idiom by eschewing blind obedience to stylistic conventions; in other words the solos are modern, kids. They play a somewhat laid-back yet exuberant groove, typical of New Orleans; yet they are so tight and swinging, their solos so driving, at times they seem almost superhuman. Clarinetist Christopher Kohl is the always affable spokes-model of the group and violinist Matt Rhody's singing is always a special treat.

CD Baby

I never could get enough of their first album when it jiggled and jived its way into CD Baby and now, with a second stunning album of classic hot club jazz, I'm doomed for good. If the names Reinhardt and Grappelli perk up your ears, this album will for sure. And yet this time, they stretch the horizon just a bit more, weaving in tinges of a surprising quality, always keeping the audience guessing. Consistently maintaining the sneaky, sassy clarinet line answering the call of a scolding, finger-shaking fiddle reprimand, there is no lack of personality to this group. In fact, you'll be lucky if you get away with just buying one.

Joe Goffeney

Somebody's been revisiting the Benny Goodman Trio. Save the stick, the instruments are different but the mood, mode, melody and magic are there. Tight, light and hot!
This is good stuff.
