HOT CLUB OF COWTOWN

Four Dead Batteries - Original Soundtrack

2006-02-15

This CD should be filed under The Hot Club of Cowtown combing 10 tracks previously recorded between 1998 & 2002 as well as 5 new tracks from founding member Whit Smith's new 5 piece band the Hot Jazz Caravan. As with the Hot Club of Cowtown Whit keeps the sounds of old time Western Swing & Jazz stylings extremely fresh. The only thing missing on the new tracks was some of missing member Elana Fremerman's excellent fiddle solos. This disc & Whit's new band will keep fans of the Cowtown happy & if the Movie has any success hopefully introduce this excellent new band to a host of new fans. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
