Second title from The Dime Notes, London's blues-drenched, clarinet-driven 1920’s New Orleans jazz, hard-swinging and very stylish vintage jazz band with its customary repertoire of stomps, blueses, and forgotten gems of the era.
More of the hallmarks of the great US clarinetist Evan Christopher... virtuosity, immaculate taste, great tone and a deep commitment. This time extended to the legacy of early Creole clarinet hero Sidney Bechet
Fapy Lafertin, musician, composer, legendary figure. Studied by many and widely thought of as the rightful heir to Django’s crown. Here fronting his New Quartet featuring the cream of the young guard of “string jazz” in Belgium.
Remastered 2xCD of the iconic albums by Fapy Lafertin & Lejazz, 'Swing Guitars' 1994 and 'Hungaria' 1996. Viewed by many as the finest Gypsy jazz albums since the last recorded releases of Quintet of the Hot Club of France.
Second recording of Les Violons from Brussels and their original take on the string orchestra. The traditional set-up of the legendary Hot Club de France Quintet, of violin, solo guitar, rhythm guitars & bass, turn on its head.
Vappie’s first opportunity to be part of a string ensemble with a Crescent City vibe. Think Hot Club of France with a Spanish tinge, a phrase used by Jelly Roll Morton to describe early New Orleans jazz.
