Dear friends, colleagues and fellow musicians,
We are very proud to present you our debut album, released by Hot Club Records.
The present recordings are a complete summary of our work and progress in the last several years. The album consists of 9 original compositions that offer a glimpse of our aim and scope in gypsy jazz, and 1 composition by Django Reinhardt, which we present as a hommage to the founder of this genre.
The album also contains several guest appearances by notable Croatian jazz musicians, starting from the pioneer of Croatian gypsy jazz, the guitarist Mate Matisic, to younger promising names of Croatian jazz, such as Pavle Golubic on percussion and Mladen Kosovec on accordion.
Very special thanks go to Branko Pucekovic, the sole responsible person for the sound of these recordings and our great friend and producer, Andrija Zelmanovic, whose photographs gave the album an identity, Jon Larsen from Hot Club Records, whose affirmative reception of our music and a generous, supportive stance towards our work made this possible at all, and all the guest musicians who, with their heartly involvement in the project, happened to enrich the final result of our work.
Lastly, great thanks to our dear friends and family, from whom came the greatest support - an indispensable contribution to our work. We sincerely hope you will enjoy the recording as we did making it!
