Hot Club of SF, “John, Paul, George and Django”
Label: Hot Club Records
Reviewed by: Kim Walter, November 2016

Well known, immediately recognizable Beatles tunes mixed in with tunes only a well-seasoned aficionado of the Fab Four would know, all done as an homage to Gypsy Jazz legend Django Reinhardt by America’s longest running Gypsy swing combo. Called a “reveltory reimagining of classic Beatles tunes”. Each song is a completely unique cover. No elevator music here!! Faves; 1, 3, **8, **10, 13, 14
CD has creative Andy Warhol style art of the three Beatles and Django

1. med- great version of an often covered (and massacred) tune
2. med- fairly obscure tune
3. med- the instruments really do the singing here
4. med- upbeat
5. med- peaceful
6. med -lesser known tune
7. slow - the cello sings the melody
8. med- translated to French by rhythm guitarist, but mainly instrumental
9. slow – beautiful, longing
10. med- **TOTALLY UNIQUE, best version ever, squeaky melodica
11. slow- nice sultry female voice
