A full video tune from the album with guest clarinetist Sylvain Hamel
« Virtuosity –yet present- is not the primary objective. The musicality and harmony are the leading points of the project … with the swing … of course. ! »
Christian Grimauld, Couleurs Jazz
« Those who are familiar with Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli will not find any slavish copying here, but rather something that makes this album irresistible: the core of the Django style has been thoroughly internalized by Vuillemin and company so that they are free to be themselves within this chosen framework. »
Budd Hopman, All about Jazz, 4 stars
« his experienced band mates and himself have well internalized Django and Grappelli’s prewar quintet work and have learnt its best lessons »
Francis Couvreux, Djangostation
« The Quartet decided to play standards which are not the most commonly played, and shows mastery and love towards this music »
Ingrid Mercks, Politis
Hope you'll enjoy !!
