Hot Club Sandwich: Green Room

Gypsy jazz is the tone set on Green Room, the latest release from Hot Club Sandwich. This Seattle based band plays acoustic jazz along the lines of Stephane Grapelli and Django Reinhardt, filled with virtuoso acoustic & classical guitars, mandolin, bass, and violin. There are vocals on a few tunes, but for the most part this is all instrumental, and a must hear for acoustic guitar fans. Tracks like "Gaucho" and "Stompin' at KAOS" feature blazing guitar passages, with some equally stunning violin and mandolin spots as well, that will have you tapping your feet groovin' to the melodies as much as you will be marveling at the sheer musicality of it all. Elements of swing & Latin jazz styles permeate the 14 songs here, all of them uplifting and easy on the ears. If you are not pulled in by the Wes Montgomery-meets-Django-meets-Grapelli flights on "Gotcha", get your pulse checked. Jazz fans need apply now.
