Hot Club of Cowtown – July 5, 2011

Hot Club of Cowtown  -  Ballard Park (Ridgefield, CT)  -  July 5, 2011

This group exists where Bob Wills western swing intersects with Django musette (his stuff was mostly drum-less, no?) somewhere in Greenwich Village (according to the recited lore).  Ballard Park is a dignified and lovely setting, always good access to muscians for autographs, and we try to get to at least one “CHIRP” per year.  Smith has his L-5 amplification so down, playing through a vintage small amp miked just right for that perfect 1940′s era crackling distortion.  Pretty full sound for a trio.
