Editorial Review:

Product Description:
Night Town, the follow-up to Hot Club Of Detroit's acclaimed Mack Avenue self-titled debut, showcases the band's maturity, virtuosity, and musical growth. While HCOD remains true to their Gypsy Jazz roots - and continues to tip their collective hat to D'Jango Reinhardt - Night Town delves into a deeper and wider milieu, drawing inspiration from the clubs of New Orleans to the free wheeling architecture of Miles Davis. Featuring collaborative compositions, these five-time Detroit Music Award winners are poised to cast an even wider net in 2008
Though not an instant classic, Night Town, the sophomore album from Hot Club of Detroit, is pleasant from start to finish. The band continues in its homage to guitarist "Django" Reinhardt, but an element of the group's own style that wasn't apparent on the debut set emerges. Particularly, the acoustic guitar work of leader Evan Perri is impressive, as is the soprano and tenor sax work of recent addition Carl Cafagna. Also impressive is the diversity of song selections: Miles Davis' "Seven Steps to Heaven," Jelly Roll Morton's "Sweet Substitute," Reinhardt's "Speevy" and "Melodie au Crepuscule," and original compositions "Two Weeks," "Night Town," and "Swing 05." The set flows nicely, kicking off with the toe-tapper "I Want to Be Happy." From there, HCoD features accordionist Julien Labro on two French tunes: "J'Attendrai" and "Valse a Rosenthal." While Night Town maintains an undeniable Parisian café sound throughout, Cafagna adds a taste of modern jazz with his solo turns on "Coquette" and "Melodie au Crepuscule." The most interesting song on the set is "Two Weeks," wherein Cafagna and Labro engage in a call-and-response between their respective instruments. --Eric C.P. Martin
