Business calls up in Chicago, but I’ll be back on Monday with more cannelés! In the meantime let’s enjoy a few selections that reflect the new wave of acoustic music that’s currently sweeping the globe. Specifically a little of the gypsy, Django Reinhardt-inspired melodies of Monsieur Periné. Lovely, no? My favorite gang of acoustic master musicians is Hot Club of Cow Town (also doing well on the Continent these days). They inject a little Texas twang into theirs, but what I ask you could possibly be wrong with that? These guys can play. As a one-time rockabilly upright bass player myself, I love how that man can slap! Back soon – Joe.
