Hot Club of New Orleans

 

Though Hot Club of New Orleans pays homage to the swing eramusic of Duke Ellington, Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli, their sound is hardly antiquated. The group elevates the sound with their modern sensibilities that is bolstered by their incredible passion for the music. Rip roaring bassist, clarinetist guitarists and violinist ignore distinctions between "modern," "traditional," "hot," and Eastern European "gypsy" jazz, sampling from each as they skillfully weave a sound all their own.
