I have been a fan of the Hombres for about five years. This CD was well worth the wait. I can bet that once you hear this group swing tunes like "Mutha's Helper" you will be hooked. It captures their gypsy spirit perfectly. Find out where they are playing live and run, don't walk to see them!! The Gypsy Hombres take swing and jazz music to a whole new level. "Cafe Strut" is only the beginning of what these guys can do!!

The Gypsy Hombres have been playing in the Nashville area for the last couple of years and I have become a great fan. Their music is derivative of Django Rienhardt/Stephane Grapelli but they add fresh, orginal sounds. The tracks on this CD include arrangements of standards (Gershwin's "I've Got Rhythm"), classical (Chopin), rock (Mutha's Helper) and original songs by the Hombres. Try it, you won't be disappointed!

I ordered this album after being totally knocked out by Justin Thompson's solo set Brand New Same Old Obsessions. The trio of Justin on guitar, Peter Hyrka on violin & Charlie Chadwick on bass create a lovely instrumental sound with one foot in classical & one foot jumping between other genres like bluegrass & jazz. Thompson's "Smokin' Joe" swings relentlessly with Chadwick's bass setting the pace. The Gershwin classic "I've Got Rhythm" blooms with this super-bluegrass arrangement. The title track makes me ask the most unlikely question, "What if The Village People had been a bluegrass band?" I think my favorite -- probably because I love The Rolling Stones -- is "Mutha's Helpa" which the Stones recorded as "Mother's Little Helper." The track bounces with that distinctive melody. "Gumshoe Boogie" sounds like a film noir soundtrack. "Cafe Strut" is a strong CD that seems timeless with stellar musicianship, great melodies and a verve that marks all great performance. Enjoy!
