This is the seventh release by one of America’s premiere “Hot Club” influenced groups, Pearl Django. “Swing 48,” the title cut on this CD, is a Django Reinhardt minor blues, and it’s used here as a vehicle to showcase the hard swing and improvisation of the five members of Pearl Django. The thirteen other compositions are a mix of band member originals, Django tunes and standards. So much of Pearl Django’s music shows their appreciation for music that is upbeat, that swings, and that generally displays their love for “Hot Club” style jazz. Features guitarists Neil Andersson and Dudley Hill, as well as violinist Michael Gray.
