The Red Rock Hot Club is recognized as one
of the top American based Gypsy Jazz Ensembles. Founded in 1999, and led by the
swinging guitar styling’s and vocal growl of Rich D’aigle, the group
specializes in Gypsy Jazz; a European take of an American Art form. With
the added help of Pat Terry and Dave Bowen, on guitar and bass, the core of
this Jazz group skillfully deliver the sound of Paris ala 1930’s and 40’s, with
the added tastes of Bourbon Street in New Orleans, served up with a side of Western
Swing, San Antonio style.
The Red Rock Hot Club Live, Volumes 1
The new two volume 2013 release, “Red Rock Hot Club Live with Special Guests”
proves to be their most exciting yet, as it’s packed with over TWO hours of Smoking
Hot Vintage Jazz Swing, and is filled with many surprises for Gypsy Jazz fans
old and new! Most noticeable is the addition of D’aigle’s vocals, which strays from
their earlier recorded works that followed the all-instrumental, Hot Club de
France format; though Django enjoyed playing with a large number of vocalists
in his day. Simply put, Rich’s voice is perfectly Jazz; a smoky, throaty growl
that evokes the tones of Louis Armstrong, Fats Waller and Tom Waits, adding a
completely new dimension to his group.
This unprecedented two plus hours, double
CD collection was recorded live at Gracie’s in Salt Lake City. Four evenings at Gracie’s were recorded, spanning
May to September, allowing them to capture entire evenings of the trio at their
favorite weekly gig. All songs were recorded “in one take” meaning no over dubs,
no do-overs and no editing before the album release. The Red Rock Hot Club is Utah’s most
exciting Jazz export ever, and proves it with this enormous, two disc release
of Vintage Hot Jazz, featuring the very spectacular special sit in guests, Mike
Miller on Guitar, Scott Harris on Clarinet and Dan Salini on Violin.
The 2009 Red
Rock Hot Club release, “Gypsy Daydream” has received rave reviews
from the world’s most distinguished Jazz critics. Django Biographer and
foremost Gypsy Jazz authority, Michael Dregni, says, “This album of Gypsy Jazz
is the real deal… and lifts them above the ordinary” (Vintage Guitar Magazine
June 09’). Frank Forte, (Just Jazz Guitar Magazine), calls the music, “Relaxed
and tasteful with gigantic technique!” Veteran Jazz reviewer, Scott Yanow, has
said, “Django would have enjoyed this CD, and would certainly sit in with the
Red Rock Hot Club!”(L.A. Jazz Scene
Magazine April 09’)
