Some albums more than others are responsible for opening up music. This one not only started a love for Gypsy Jazz it also started me exploring Jazz. I first got into the album due to a friend lending me a whole bunch of albums and whilst it been in my collection for over 30 years I still enjoy listening to it. The album displays Bireli electric influences with only one track showing his Django routes. It took me years to appreciate the first track I think mainly as one of those tracks that needs a resolving system that is well balanced to get the best out of it. But it tracks like Hips and Action that is the main focus of the album I was lucky enough to see him play on his next album release and had the best seat in the house right in front of him playing guitar.

Thanks, John. I had a listen this morning at work and I'll admit I was not hopeful. I'm now listening on the big rig and it's quite an exciting sound, well recorded and with serious dynamics.
Saying that, this is very far from my 'main sequence' of music or even some of my more exotic tastes. I've tried and it's not really geling with me. I can appreciate its technical sophistication but musically it's not really for me. Score 4 which is really 2/5.
