Evan Perri: Hot Club of Detroit Guitarist
Jill Pasternak interviews Perri, who along with the rest of the Hot Club will appear at Chris' Jazz Cafe on October 31.
More than seven decades after the innovations of the Quintette du Hot Club de France, featuring guitar virtuoso Django Reinhardt, combos called Hot Clubs carry on the gypsy jazz sound around the globe in Tokyo, San Francisco, Seattle, Sweden, Norway, Austria, and many other locales. Led by fast-fingered Reinhardt disciple Evan Perri, the Hot Club of Detroit offers a fresh take on the tradition.
