Malibu Manouche: As the Crow Flies Modern Hot Records MHR016
Gypsy Jazz guitarist Neil Andersson’s Malibu Monouche releases their second album with As the Crow Flies. Neil and fellow guitarist Peter Pendras this time have served up an album of all originals including one from their Seattle bassist Chuck Deardorf. You will find that these wonderful songs are ones that you will want to listen to again and again. They don't do the fun Beach Boy or Ventures covers that they did on their first album but the blended styles are still represented through the originals on this disc. All musicians are in fine form. If you are looking for a gypsy jazz album with a fun eclectic twist, check this out.
Malibu Manouche: Surf Jazz
Modern Hot Records MHR012 Malibu Manouche...is a little unlike any other music you’ve ever heard in your life. Or perhaps it would be more correct to say that it is very much like a whole bunch of music you’ve heard all your life…just never in this rather peculiar but extremely delightful combination.
