ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes

Chasing the Moon's new CD “Nuages” features gypsy-styled jazz in the tradition of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli. The exuberant and romantic sounds of jazz manouche are blended with classic American swing and south of the border Latin to create an engaging and lively performance style.
The music has a sound that’s reminiscent of the great jazz of days gone by, of Ella tearing up a scat, Lester Young playing sweet, or Django burning the fret board.
There is freshness in the way they combine different styles – a mix of hot club with the blues, a touch of folk, flirting with Latin rhythms, lashings of swing with something modern too. And there is excitement, as if they are discovering it all for the first time; taking chances and taking the audience with them.
The frontline consists of Kathy Bluff on lead vocals and violin, Paul Burjan on saxophone and flute and Peter Malone on guitar. The rhythm section is John Conley on double bass and Tony Keep on drums. For the CD they are joined by special guest Garry Steel on accordion and keyboards.
Bluff’s vocals are warm and soulful leading us from intimate ballads to toe-tapping upbeat swing. Burjan’s sound ranges from gently floating flute to sweet soprano and grunting tenor sax. Pete Malone’s Django-influenced guitar gives the band its distinctive gypsy feel, driving the rhythm section and swapping free floating lines with both violin and sax. John Conley (Galapagos Duck) and Tony Keep provide the rhythmic backbone of the band playing sweet and in the pocket and always to the point.
