​About This Music:

​​​​For the third and ​fi​nal CD ​​featuring ​​​my Europe-based quartet Django à la Créole that ​performed between 2007-201​5, we had the last four concerts of our 2012 season professionally recorded​. The best tracks ​were arranged into a concert-length experience​.

​Our friends at Frèmeaux and Associates in Paris enthusiastically helped us finish the production, complete with ​an extensive booklet in French and English​​. They also produced the previous two CDs of the group, Finesse and our eponymous recorded debut.

​LIVE! is arguably the most "New Orleans" of our efforts, but it still reflects ​our original ​concept of a "Creolized" approach to Django Reinhardt's music and brand of swing.
