ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Harking back to the speakeasy clubs of the 1920's and 1930's, Spyglass Gypsies faithfully recreate the sounds of the Parisian 'Hot Clubs', in particular the stylings of gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt and the Hot Club de France.

Combining traditional 'Manouche' repertoire with tasteful originals and gypsy-influenced modern classics, Spyglass Gypsies deliver an energetic and playful performance, displaying all the subtleties and nuances of a highly communicative and intuitive ensemble, while still retaining the fire and passion of the gypsy jazz style.

Guitarist Richard Ashby and saxophonist Loretta Palmeiro co-founded the ensemble after time spent in Europe studying and performing with gypsy musicians. The addition of top Sydney jazz performers Andrew Scott (accordion), Cameron Jones (guitar) and Shannon Haritos (double bass) has enabled the group to establish themselves as one of the leading ensembles in Australian Gypsy Jazz.

Performing throughout Australia since 2010, the group has appeared at noted venues including the Opera House, the Art Gallery of NSW, the Vanguard and Camelot Lounge. They have appeared at several festivals including the Kiama Jazz & Blues festival, Illawarra Jazz festival and Newcastle Jazz festival as well as supporting international touring artists Lollo Meier and Remi Harris.

'The French phrase ‘joie de vivre’ – literally ‘joy of living’ – is all over this music, infectious and grin-inducing' –
John Hardaker, The Orange Press
