The rhythm/lead guitar pairing of Paul Brady and Evan Perri tethers the Hot Club of Detroit's music to Reinhardt, but it's a long rope that connects the two. [Junction] leaves plenty of room for roaming and this outfit takes advantage of it throughout this highly pleasing album. --Dan Bilawsky
The new album, Junction, finds Hot Club of Detroit expanding its sonic horizon and refreshing its musical vocabulary. Joined by a vocalist for the first time, HCOD welcomes French native Cyrille Aimée, third-place winner of the 2010 Thelonious Monk International Vocal Competition.
