O’s Notes: The Hot Club is Paul Mehling (g,banjo), Evan Price (violin), Clint Baker (b) and rhythm guitarists Jason Vanderford & Jeff Magidson. The program is centered on the works of Django Reinhardt. We liked the upbeat “Vendredi 13” and the soft ballad “Les Chemins De L’Amour”. The balance of pace and selection of music makes this one of the better Django albums. We get a chance to view the Reinhardt’s soul and passion along with his virtuosity.
