Album Notes
Editorial Review Editor: Giancarlo Davis

The Skinny
First and foremost, Hot Club of San Francisco pays tribute to the late great polyglot composer-jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt. As a gypsy guitarist, Reinhardt created music that blended multiple styles, especially those of Eastern Europe and New Orleans, whose jazz sound was fast becoming popular throughout Europe at the time the guitarist emerged.

The Hot Club of San Francisco captures Reinhardt's music and brings it into the 21st century. Barely wired for sound, the acoustic ensemble is led by founder Paul Mehling, a string instrument Renaissance man who plays guitar, violin, bass, plectrum and banjo. Hot Club's sprightly "gypsy-swing" recalls Paris in the '20s, when Reinhardt and his brand of sweltering, string-oriented jazz was making Left Bank girls Charleston on cafe tabletops. Maybe it's gypsy magic: rumor has it Hot Club's got our gals doing it here, too.

The Scene
Anyone that likes hot jazz with their cold cocktail.

Over 11 years of parties, concerts, festivals (including the Django Reinhardt festival in France and Iceland, Seattle and Fresno) the QHCSF (Quintet of the Hot Club of San Francisco)appeals to both kinds of people with blue hair.

Great addition to the genre
This CD is a great addition to the genre of "Gypsy Jazz"
It is as if Django et al were still around hot jammin,
new and contemporary tunes.
