Hot Club Of Detroit On Piano Jazz

Hot Club of Detroit.
Hot Club of Detroit.

Seventy years after Django Reinhardt's Quintette du Hot Club de France fused Gypsy-style guitar with the jazz of the day, a new Hot Club emerged in the Motor City. The Hot Club of Detroit is Evan Perri on lead guitar, Julien Labro on accordion, Carl Cafagna on soprano and tenor sax, Paul Brady on rhythm guitar and Andrew Kratzat on bass.

The music the Hot Club of Detroit plays for this 2009 Piano Jazz session ranges from traditional Gypsy jazz in "Coquette" to the bal musette waltz "Passion."

Originally broadcast in the summer of 2009.
