It is like a cross between the gypsy jazz style and modern electro/techno.

Stumbled on these guys quite by accident, and have been listening to this album over and over again since.

I think this is great music for parties, for dancing, for listening in the car, etc.

I've really enjoyed listening to Caravan Palace since accidentally stumbling onto their MySpace page several years ago. They started off as a trio of studio musicians making backing tracks for silent porn films, but were found by a producer, grew to 6 members, and began touring around France in '06-'07 before putting out their debut studio album in '08.

Musically, they're a cross between old jazz (think roaring 20's) and catchy electro-swing music. You've got scat singing, violin, clarinet, guitar, trombone, synthesizers, vocals and samples from old songs all mixed together and performed to a thumping bass.

I think this is great music for parties, for dancing, for listening in the car, etc. All-around enjoyable and very innovative... plus their guitarist is awesome. Reminds me a bit of Django Reinhardt, if Django had a modern DJ accompanying him. Worth listening to!

Wacky, retro, and energetic, Caravan Palace is an eccentric amalgamation of the old and the new that's really not like any other music you've heard. Part 30's swing, part modern electronic dance, the music has a steampunk charm to it that makes you want to dance. The quirkiness takes a while to adjust to, but once you've acclimated you'll love it forever.

I had heard of this group a few months ago. I missed their show here in San Francisco but sought out their music.
Fantastic purchase. I want to share this music with everyone. If you like a great jazz, swing vibe with a strong Euro, retro feel this is music you cannot pass up. If you are in the car or chilling with a cocktail (my favorite method) I think you will find every song a gem in itself. I see that there are also two videos available on YouTube. Suzy and Jolie Coquine. Both absolutely delightful.

A friend of mine recommended I listen to Caravan Palace, and am I ever happy I did. This music is extremely enjoyable on so many levels.

First, the sonic textures tickle and the overall sound is magnificent on a good system. It sounds meticulously produced.

Second, the side of me that craves something more sublime than mere dance music gets all it needs. Surprising arrangements, tonal twists, a novel atmosphere, instrumental virtuosity, hidden layers, rhythmic complexity - it's sophistication on parade. There is never a note put wrong.

Third, beautiful melodies and hooky phrases grab me and take me places I want to back to again and again.

I've noticed when I play this for people, most of them like it and want to know the name.

Very appealing stuff.

A fantastic, upbeat CD. Swing meets electronica. And if you should ever be fortunate to see this group you will go wild! They were at the Montreal Jazz Festival July 3, 2010 and played twice in one night to a crowd, each time, of over 100,000 people.

If you like unusual music you'll love this group! Fast paced, klezmer/swing/techno/dance and catchy with a mix of intruments unusual in any other band. I was hooked the first time I heard them on satellite radio and had to have it. Very textured sound, easy to listen to and it grows on you with each play. Very creative.
It took InandOut Records a month to get it to me, my only compliant, but it arrived (from Austria) intact. We need more music like Caravan Palace to make up for the pablum you hear on commercial radio. If you're tired of all the ordinary sounds, try this one for a delightful treat and get up and dance!

Conspiring to rehabilitate classic big band/swing with a modern sound Caravan Palace has taken retro revival to the new frontier.

I didn't know there's music genre called electro swing- ever! But I watched a short fan movie and the bg was Bambous by Caravan palace.
I quite liked the song and bought both of the cds which became one of my best cds for now!
Tring to find other good electro swing songs though Caravan palace is still on the top :p
