They are all highly skilled in their respective instruments.
Rebecca*rhapsodyinblue*
While audiophile recordings will often obsess on brilliance and clarity to the point of sterility, the recording on this album is transcendently natural.
Shepherd Siegel
Professor Keith Johnson and Reference Recordings are the best recordings because he takes the time to do it right.

The reverence gypsy jazz musicians all feel for Django Reinhardt, the inventor and perfecter of the idiom, makes them step cautiously into innovation, and that has served the culture well...and the Hot Club of San Francisco has always had the tightest grip on what the authentic guts of the sound require. As the pre-eminent American gypsy jazz ensemble, HCSF triumphs with Yerba Buena Bounce, preserving that 1930's sound while propelling gypsy jazz well into the 21st century.

On their 2005 release, Postcards from Gypsyland, the HCSF set new, high standards for themselves or anyone wishing to enter the game: in recording quality, professionalism, and fidelity to the gypsy jazz idiom, most curious because the geologic pace of its evolution that never seems to detract from its endless energy. If Postcards set out to impress, Yerba Buena Bounce finds the group even more comfortable in their musical skins; it's more a session where they found great material and arrangements and decided to just have some fun, play great. The result is music that impresses even more.

Paul "Pazzo" Mehling, the founder and leader, sticks to what has always worked well before, and concentrated on doing it better than he ever has: four Django tunes, and classics from Bechet, Carmichael, Lester Young, Lennon/McCartney, and as always, some sparkling originals. Reinhardt's Mystery Pacific, the opener, draws you into the fun and magical space of gypsy jazz freedom, impeccably recorded, authentically reproduced. On the Beatle's I'm Happy Just To Dance With You (yes, the only Lennon/McCartney tune sung by George!

"Yerba Buena Bounce," the newest album by Paul Mehling's Hot Club of San Francisco, really stunned me, though I have long been aware of this fine band. This album is a must for any fan of Gypsy jazz, or of "old jazz" in general. It has the right spirit, great execution, and vibrant recording methods.

First, the acoustics generated at legendary Fantasy Studios are as good as it gets. One feels throughout that he's seated right before a live bank of hot guitars playing in perfect unison, as in the old Parisian haunts of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli. You've got to hear the sound of the guitar wall on "Tickle Toe" and the brightness of the horns played by friends who sat in for "Some of These Days."

Paul Mehling has always had a classic "Django band," with his lead guitar, two accompanying guitars, a solo violin, and bass. Though he has tweaked the band a bit in the past twenty years or so, this classic format has usually prevailed and it reaches its zenith in this recording. Paul's own playing is superb as he romps over some of the brisker and more difficult Django tunes, like "Mystery Pacific," "Rythme futur," and "Black and White."

Evan Price's viloin lead on Pres' "Tickle Toe" is superb, and just when you think it can't get get any better than that, he launches into a swinging chorus or two of "Black and White." Evan has been a stalwart in Paul's band for a long time, bowing with a boppish flair that just ain't that easy on violin. And for fans of the double bass, Ari Monkres is a never-fail chord-keeper who gets an overdue break on "Stardust," where he takes the lead.

Format: Audio CD
Michael Dregni, the author of Django: The Life and Music of a Gypsy Legend, wrote a catchy title on the Liner Notes and I quote: "BEWARE: The small plastic disc you hold in your hands is one dangerous item." Yes, indeed, not only "dangerous" but highly contagious and infectious! Listening to it takes the listeners to the world of Django Reinhardt, hailed as the greatest guitarist who ever lived, and a genius of violin Stephane Grapelli's Quintette du Hot Club de France in the tradition of string jazz or "Jazz Manouche" -- a term originated in Paris in 1920s to describe this kind of jazz.

If you're a fan of both jazz greats, you'll absolutely love this album, "Yerba Buena Bounce" by The Hot Club of San Francisco, one of the most sought-out groups in the West Coast jazz scene today. They are all highly skilled in their respective instruments. The members are Evan Price (violin), Paul Mehling (guitar), Ari Munkres (bass), Jeff Magidson and Jason Vanderford (rhythm guitar) with their special guest, the equally talented David Grisman who plays mandolin on "Lullaby" and "Sway."

Consisting of 17 tunes that are pleasing to the ears, the disc is an an olio of covers, originals and rarely recorded tracks. There isn't any uninspiring track to bore your auditory sense. While the title track "Yerba Buena Bounce" is the most bubbly and sparkling tune where you can jive to its danceable beat, "Stardust" is the most mellow and smoothly beautiful tune that evokes images of 1940s--the great era of Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman and Artie Shaw.

Listen at your own risk...it is really a "dangerous item!"
