“Breathes new life into [gypsy jazz].” – SF Gate
Led by ace guitarist Paul Mehling, the Hot Club of San Francisco is one of the Bay Area’s great musical treasures. Mehling started the band by coaching some of his favorite locals musicians on how to play the gypsy jazz style, and blending it with the classic jazz styles of NYC’s 52nd Street. Since it’s inception, the Hot Club of San Francisco has had a “swing or die” approach that’s ingratiated itself with fans across many genres. This outing features vocalist Isabelle Fontaine, who steps away from her usual rhythm guitar duties to belt out a selection of must-haves and little-known gems.
