Tonight's show brings musicians who not only revive but enrich the so-called gypsy jazz (the French call it "manouche") of the 1920s. The Hot Club of Detroit are southeastern Michigan's own band of Django Reinhart revivalists. They include Marseilles-born accordionist Julien Labro, who provides a direct link to the French musette style from which French jazz grew. Says Detroit jazz giant James Carter: "The Hot Club of Detroit plays with such reverence and passion. They play with a different level of conviction." The Hot Club has released four albums, including the stylistically varied "Junction," and has appeared on NPR's "Piano Jazz." Get ready for a hot time in the old town tonight!
