At long last, we have a new jazz recording! It has been worth the wait. RR-109,"Yerba Buena Bounce" crackles with hot solos and intimate musical explorations! This is the 10th CD by the Hot Club of San Francisco, America's longest-running and finest Gypsy Jazz ensemble. The album contains explorations of Django Reinhardt's tunes, plus originals and more. The shimmering, lifelike HDCD sound is some of Professor Johnson's finest: you'll swear the group is in the room with you! As a special bonus, two tracks feature mandolinist extraordinaire David Grisman.

With Yerba Buena Bounce, its tenth CD, The Hot Club of San Francisco confirms its reputation as America’s longest-running and finest Gypsy Jazz ensemble. Inspired explorations of Django Reinhardt’s tunes, originals and more, are captured in shimmering HDCD sound.

The Hot Club of San Francisco is a quintet of accomplished and versatile musicians who celebrate Django Reinhardt’s and Stephane Grappelli’s renowned Hot Club de France. The ensemble borrows the all-string instrumentation of three guitars, violin and bass from the original Hot Club, but breathes new life into the music with innovative arrangements of classic tunes and original compositions from the group’s superb lead guitarist, Paul Mehling. Hearing the ensemble takes the listener back to the 1930s and to the small, smoky jazz clubs of Paris. The music of The Hot Club of San Francisco has entranced audiences around the globe for more than a decade. Their performances have been hailed as “intricate, scorching, and often brilliant” (Acoustic Guitar).

Mandolinist David Grisman, father of Dawg music and good friend of The Hot Club, makes a special guest appearance on two tracks. The set is further enhanced by bandoneon virtuoso Seth Asarno. Two bonus tracks feature the quintet augmented by three Dixieland horns!

Recorded by multi-Grammy-nominated “Prof.” Keith Johnson at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, California, the Yerba Buena Bounce sessions benefited from the historic ambience, scene of hundreds of classic jazz and rock recordings. Using his own custom-built microphones and electronics (as always), Johnson was able to utilize some of Fantasy’s unique facilities, such as a legendary echo chamber, to add
luster to his always life-like soundscapes.
