Hot Club of 52nd Street by Alden / Frigo / Moore / Pizzarelli

An engaging summit session chaired by the estimable seven-string guitar master, Bucky Pizzarelli, bringing together four generations worth of original talents to celebrate the enduring vision of gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt. Bucky Pizzarelli is joined by Michael Moore (bass), Johnny Frigo (violin) and Howard Alden (acoustic guitar).

"It sounds fabulous...its possibly the best-recorded jazz disc I"ve heard in years...And the band it puts in your listening room is a killer...In fact if I have any complaints about this disc it's that I wasn't there in the audience on the night it was recorded." Wes Phillips (onhifi.com May 2004)

"...this is a rare kind of swinging foot-stomping finger-tapping live session...Conceived and carried out in the spirit of guitar great Django Reinhardt." All About Jazz (May 2004)

"...the quartet of Hot Club Of 52nd Street reminds the listeners of the possibilities for acoustic string instruments to excite audiences." jazzreview.com (May 2004)
