". . . there aren’t enough superlatives to describe their sound. . . ” �"All About Jazz
The Hot Club of San Francisco, “one of the most cohesive and entertaining Gypsy swing bands in the United States,” plays for one night only, March 4 at University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa Campus Center Ballroom (San Francisco Chronicle). This ensemble of accomplished and versatile musicians celebrates the music of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli’s pioneering Quintette du Hot Club de France.
Often called gypsy jazz, the music of The Hot Club of San Francisco has entranced audiences around the globe for over 25 years. With innovative arrangements of classic tunes and original compositions from the group’s superb lead guitarist, Paul Mehling, and featuring the silken violin of twice GRAMMY® Award-winning Evan Price, the velvet vocals of Isabelle Fontaine, and a swinging rhythm section, the group never fails to surprise and delight. To hear the ensemble live or on any of their 13 albums is to be carried back to the tight, smoky jazz clubs of 1930's Paris and to the refined lounge of the famous Hotel Ritz.
