For those unfamiliar:
"Philadelphia can claim another Hot Swing act besides the great Joe Venuti. Saw the Hot Club of Philadelphia last night at the World Cafe, and their show was a killer! The warmed up for John Jorgenson, but could have easily passed for the headliners. Picked up there latest CD: "Wrap Your Troubles in Dreams", which puts them right up there. There is a good article on them and the Django Centenial at: http://www.philly.com/philly/entertainm ... 49292.html

"The Hot Club's first CD, entitled Wrap Your Troubles in Dreams, features Wahrhaftig, and an array of other well-known local players, violinist Mark Campiglia, Bob Butryn clarinet, Phyllis Chapell and Denise King vocals and Jim Stager bass. Howard Alden, also makes a strong appearance. " Art Howe, Philadelphia Inquirer"
Should be a great concert to check out. Gonna be awesome, I'm sure.
