“This music is about a balance of excitement and beauty, and Hot Club of San Francisco has found the perfect balance.” —Jazzweek.com
Be swept away to a smoky 1930s Paris jazz club by the seductive sounds of Hot Club’s gypsy swing. Grounded in the pioneering style of Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli’s Hot Club de France, the ensemble offers a fitting homage to the sophisticated music while adding its own refreshing energy. Virtuosic guitar, violin, and bass will charm throughout. In the second half, Hot Club colors the vintage silent film The Mascot, an adventure story about lost toys, with its humorous accompaniment.
