ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Yo-ki Swing" will give you joy and mirth, making you feel energy pumping up from inside of you. It is a collection of original music inspired by the gypsy jazz tradition of Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli, and fusing music styles from around the world. The title tune "Yo-ki Swing" (Yo-ki means joy and mirth in Japanese) is a Klezmer influenced toe-tapping gypsy jazz tune, while "Bean Town", in swing band style, is about our beautiful town Boston, Massachusetts. "Painted Lady", in musette style waltz, is about the white and black dotted orange butterfly, Vanessa Cardui. "Haboob" features percussion and chimes capturing a violent wind blowing in summer. "Lucky Seven" is a main stream jazz tune written with just 7 chords and "Endless Stream" is a sentimental bossa nova tune. You will hear a little bit of Beethoven in "Moody's Waltz" and imagine a traveling gypsy caravan in "Gypsy Descent".
