Direct from Austin, Texas, Hot Club of Cowtown once again bring their dreamy array of Western Swing, hot club & songs from out on the trail back to the UK.
Hailed for their down-home melodies and exuberant improvisation, Hot Club weave a combination of seemingly disparate styles to create their own magical effect – “A breathless journey in the Texas Tardis” (The Times) – setting up camp “at the crossroads where country meets jazz and chases the blues away” (The Independent).
Hot Club of Cowtown are musicians whose mastery of their instruments is seemingly complete, whether the never-miss-a-beat rhythmic strum & slap of Jake Erwin’s bass, Whit Smith’s effortlessly lazy guitar or Elana James’ sizzling, redhot fiddle licks. Not to mention the assured ease of their vocal harmonies.
With such variety in their material, it isn’t possible for any single video to show the full range of Hot Club’s music, but here’s one to give a taste.
