Swing for Bop

by Reinier Voet & Pigalle44

With "Swing for Bop" we seem to have found the answer to the question of what is to become of the Hotclub de France style in this day and age. The best way forward has been chosen by Reinier Voet. (Ton Ouwehand, Jazz Magazine, Netherlands)

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Reinier Voet &Pigalle44 has been around for a while and recorded some marvelous albums (Our Gypsy Rhapsody, Bric à Brac, ThemBest of Gypsy Swing from Holland) but Swing for Bop is their most eclectic. While the songlist includes many classics, the band reworks the songs in their own image. Their version of Django’s “Belleville,” for instance, is uniquely original, led by Voet’s stylish lead guitar. The CD’s title track is the most innovative cut, with its melody line literally moving from a swing sensibility to sophisticated bop phrasing and vocabulary. Backed by accordionist Gert Wantenaar, it’s an impressive song both for its composition, tight band ensemble work, and solos.
Michael Dregni (author of Django Reinhardt, the life and Music of a Gypsy Legend)



Just received my copy of this today and it's outstanding! A step above their previous release which says something right there. Rightfully so, they played the main stage at Samois this year. Voet is as influenced by Crolla, Jim Hall and Jimmy Raney as he is by Django, and this sound, a more mainstream jazz sound, is what sets him so much from everyone else. That and the fact that he is a wonderful composer, arranger and improvisor and combining that with his amazing band and you have a sure fire winner. Guys and gals, if you're tired of the same old stuff, buy this CD. If you're not tired of the same old stuff, buy it anyway and learn that there is life beyond the same old stuff. Thanks Reinier and Jan!
