Album Review
Decca
Reviewed 2007-09-08 
Mostly original compositions in the Gypsy Jazz tradition. Jorgenson is one hell of a good guitarist (and not a bad clarinet & trombone player either). Joined by viola, violin, bass, percussion, cello and other strings. Django would approve. I know I do. One star every track, it’s all so good. Total happy music.

1. Light, upbeat and happy and driving. Instantly catchy.
2. Starts slow then a delicious midtempo bounce w/slower flourishes.
3. Dramatic Flamenco-inspired intro to #4. Solo guitar, slow then fast.
4. Upbeat, Andalusian-flavored jam w/wonderful blend of strings.
5. Sweetly retro and relaxed w/warm fem vocals.
6. Midtempo w/lots of strings echoing sharp lead guitar.
7. Swinging clarinet on a bright and breezy romp. So cool!
8. Upbeat swing w/a Latin accent.
9. Fast and furious w/a hyper-cartoony energy. Yow! Love it.
10. Slow, ends fast. Lush strings, dramatic energy. Lovely.
11. Similar to #10. Slow & delicate w/a quiet sort of emotional power.
12. A more modern sound. A driving, upbeat meander w/energy.
