Editorial Reviews

Founder and bandleader Frank Vignola is one of the most accomplished, multi-dimensional players walking the planet today, capable of playing everything from commercial pop-jazz and fusion to hard bop, post-bop, and swing.

The native New Yorker has a wide variety of influences, everyone from Wes Montgomery, Joe Pass and Pat Metheny to Django Reinhardt and Charlie Christian. Vignola is incredibly proficient in every setting and this monster player, composer and improviser works with everyone and their brother.

Frank has a pedigree a mile long, but a quick Google will illustrate why he is considered one of the best on the planet. Whether a sideman for the late great Lionel Hampton, featured on a Donald Fagen recording, a jam with David Grisman, as Les Paul's right hand man, or leading his own group, Frank has proven himself to be in the elite creating unique and amazing music.

The Vignola Collective, a mesmerizing band of the hottest jazz artisans of today, shatter the barriers between popular music and traditional jazz on their debut Dare Records release Gypsy Grass! These amazing virtuosos mix high-energy original material with unique renditions of songs such as Lemme Take You To The Beach written by Frank Zappa and Appel Direct penned by Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli. The result - a smokin' blend of jazz, contemporary fusion, gypsy jazz, bluegrass, swing, and blues. It's not jazz as we know jazz here in America. - Les Paul

I dig Vignola, and this is one of his strongest records.
It has a hint of Grisman in it, too, to me.
Wish he would do more original material. But I can't complain when he plays Django, or really, anybody's music.
Great recording, this one. Get it. Love it.
