Hot Club of Cowtown at The Apex...

Hot Club of Cowtown at The Apex

 

From the bright lights of Nashville’s Grand Ol' Opry to the Glastonbury and Cambridge Festivals, The Hot Club of Cowtown has ascended from its unlikely beginnings in NYC's East Village more than two decades ago, to become the premier ambassadors of Hot Jazz and Western Swing.

 

The joyful sound of this effervescent string trio blends traditional Western swing of the American southwest with European hot jazz influences of the same era.

 

There are glimpses into Romany music and culture, along with the musical sophistication and sizzle of Stephane Grappelli and Django Reinhardt's Quintette du Hot Club de France.

 

The trio also write their own material and reinterpret everything from hoedowns to American songbook standards in their own original style: Elana James's spring-fingered violin solos and Whit Smith's liquid guitar lines are propelled by Jake Erwin's driving percussive upright bass.

 

“…Spirit, originality and skill that would surely have impressed Stephane Grappelli and Django Reinhardt back in the 1930s.” - Robin Denselow, The Guardian

 

Hot Club of Cowtown perform at The Apex on Monday 11 November at 7.30pm, see www.theapex.co.uk or ring 01284 758000 for more information or to book tickets.
