Album Review

Reviewed 2009-02-12 
Wonderful mix of old standards and originals, gypsy jazz at heart, but with a contemporary flair and even hints of chamber music. Expertly played by O’Connor on violin, Frank Vignola guitar and Jon Burr bass. Energy, style, class. It pays homage to gypsy jazz but takes a fresh pass at it. Watch for applause.

*1. Sweetly swinging, bright, w/good solos & a no-frills style.
*2. Starts midtempo, gets fast & furious. O’Connor smokes on this one!
3. Like a sleepy Southern summer, lyrical & languid. Bayou-esque.
4. Starts slow, picks up, gets lazy again. The classic updated.
5. Midtempo rag w/sweet violin in a restrained arrangement.
*6. Midtempo, quirky contemporary gypsy jazz swing.
*7. Slow, plaintive, like a pioneer’s song of home.
*8. Upbeat toe-tapper with a Romany folk flair. So good!
9. Relaxed classic, sleepily charming and stylish.
10. Mid/upbeat w/some wicked fast strings. Yow!
