CD Review: Emma Fisk's Hot Club du Nord - Hot Club du Nord

Emma Fisk (violin); James Birkett (guitar); Dave Harris (guitar); Bruce Rollo (double bass)
(Review by Russell).
Hot Club du Nord hit the ground running. Emma Fisk and Dave Harris worked together in Djangology and James Birkett and Bruce Rollo were well-versed in the Hot Club idiom. In a matter of weeks, the quartet began to play to full houses in jazz clubs and theatres. Hot Club du Nord is the band's recently released debut CD and already it's selling like hot cakes.
From the opening track - Exactly Like You to Oriental Shuffle and Coquette through to DinahBelleville and Lady Be Good, the album's twelve tracks are a total delight. Django and Stéphane the inspiration, Hot Club du Nord's sound is that of a distant era given a twenty-first century north of England twist. 

Emma Fisk's virtuosity is readily evident and the violinist's bandmates are similarly virtuosic - guitarists Birkett and Harris, and ever-popular bassist Bruce Rollo. The album's tunes will be familiar to anyone with a passing interest in the Hot Club de France or the Great American Songbook. As a Christmas present for the Djangologist (or simply the lover of good music) in your life, Hot Club du Nord is the solution. There's still time to acquire a copy in time for the big day, visit: www.hotclubdunord.co.uk
