BDJ Festival, day 5: queen city hot club

June 10, 2009
Burlington's new Queen City Hot Club

Burlington's new Queen City Hot Club: (from left to right) Jim Stout, Jim McCuen & Jared Volpe

The buzz got around just before the start of this year’s Jazz Festival, there’s a new group in town: the Queen City Hot Club.

Every good music community needs a Hot Club, I think, and for a place that supports jazz like Vermont does we were overdue.

There are a couple of very fine groups in town already who play from that genre, the Will Patton Ensemble and Mike Martin & Trio Gusto have been around for more than a decade, playing and recording repertoire that ranges from gypsy and country swing to bluegrass and Brazilian sambas. A classy, entertaining mix from some truly great musicians.

The Queen City Hot Club’s style is centered squarely in Paris, c. 1935. As they swung through classics like All of Me, Moonlight in Vermont (of course!) and Lady Be Good yesterday on Burlington’s Church Street Marketplace, I thought of some of my other favorite Hot Club/gypsy swing recordings.  A few of them are below, in no special order. (Except you have to at least start at the source with Django and Stephane. After that – explore, have fun, find the group that suits your style – and don’t forget to dance!)
