As with the first CD Swing Guitars Hungaria was recorded in a fashion similar to that used by Django Reinhardt and Stephanne Grappelli in the mid 1930s. A very few photographic references, and a lettle experimentation pointed towards using one principal microphone (in our case BBC circa 1938) for the whole band, and one or two ambience mics to high light different dynamics. Each track is a live performance with no drop-ins, clean ups, overdubs, and the mix was altered only by moving our chairs. The slightest movement altered greatly the tone and volume of each individual instrument. The quality of sound, strictly monophonic, with flat dynamic range, poor frequency response and absence of harmonics we found to be a bi-product of playing and recording in a style long forgotten by most, and longed for by others.
This album swings like the clappers!
