French music for the soul….

Cuddle up on a cold January afternoon with Duo Gadjo, jazz with a French Flair, invoking the style of Django Reinhardt and Gypsy Swing with a touch Edith Piaf, Charles Trenet, and others who composed under the spell of French musical charm.  [duogadjo.com]

Hot Club Faux Gitane

Hot Club Faux Gitane

Nov. 17, 2019

An acoustic swing band like no other, Hot Club Faux Gitane* draws inspiration from the Gypsy jazz tradition pioneered by Django Reinhardt and his Quintette du Hot Club de France, with acoustic guitars and double bass providing the rhythmic core. The group’s unique instrumentation features mandolin, bassoon, and vocals, with occasional clarinet and melodica. Inventive and witty arrangements augment traditional Gypsy repertoire with original compositions, jazz standards, Latin tunes, and hints of Eastern European Klezmer. This is upbeat, toe-tapping music that will have you bopping in your seat, if not dancing in the aisles!    [fauxgitane.com]

[* Roughly translated, our name means “Hot Club of the Fake Gypsies.” Yes, we know it’s not proper French.]

The Ronstadt Brothers

The Ronstadt Brothers

Sept. 8, 2019

The Ronstadt Brothers carry forward a sound closely tied in its infancy to their aunt Linda Ronstadt and their musician/composer father, Michael Ronstadt. The brothers, Michael Gilbert and Peter Dalton, with drummer Aaron Emery, present a new fresh take on the traditional Southwestern and Mexican songs of the Ronstadt family’s heritage along with innovative originals for millennials discovering the treasure of roots music.

These outstanding young musicians are committed to “preserv[ing] and redefin[ing] a century-plus family tradition, integral to the diverse tapestry of American music.” (Stephanie P. Ledgin, author, Discovering Folk Music).  [facebook.com/RonstadtBrothers]

As comedian Pat Paulsen exclaimed upon the band’s performance on the original “Gong Show”:
