Gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt and his comrades in Europe in the 1930s and 40s created a brand of music and an approach to jazz that continues to be popular throughout the world. There are Hot Clubs (the name celebrates the Hot Club of Paris which Django and violinist Stephane Grappelli formed) in places as diverse as Norway and San Francisco!

Philadelphian Barry Wahrhaftig started his Hot Club of Philadelphia in 2001 and the music here is a joyous blend of tunes by the master and other numbers that Django played. The style depends on virtuoso playing but with an expressiveness that always serves the music. There are 11 tunes here - three with vocals by the talented Denise King and one a lovely take on Django's Nuages by Phyllis Chapell. And on the Gershwins' Someone To Watch Over Me, wizard Howard Alden takes over the lead guitar duties. The great thing about this kind of music is that it's about the joy of making music. The style is so familiar that the listener will feel like he or she knows the tunes even if they're not familiar. How much modern jazz so seamlessly creates this kind of joy?

Wonderful album filled with Django Reinhardt-inspired music with, in some cases, a modern twist. I gravitated towards two songs with Denise King vocals in particular: "Someone to Watch Over Me" and "Nature Boy." The latter has a Latin, Spanish guitar-sounding vibe that I just love, plus "Nature Boy" is one of my favorite standards, in part because it's such an unusual song. I think I have five versions, including of course the classic Nat King Cole. But I digress. This is beautiful music that's good for for tapping feet, and for the soul.
