Music

Highland HotClub are a swinging combo.........exploring the virtues of popular music culture from across the multiverse.............our repetoire ranges from Gypsy Jazz, Standards, Hot Country, Latin American & wee bit diddly dee
 
Stevie, plinky-plink thunder god...
Howardo, latin fiddler loverer...
Evelyn, sultry key stroker...
Ross - gypsy pimping eye candie
 
 
Stephen McKeand ......I am obsessed with all things guitar and it seems anyone who is anyone has been influenced directly or indirectly by Django Reindhart. So, it was inevitable I should seek out his work. Django took the New Orleans Jazz of Louis Armstrong & fused this with Parisian musettes and European folk music to create Gypsy Jazz. When you first hear these scratchy records with those s...cary licks, it's easy to see that Django was the first guitar hero and his music sounds as fresh today as ever. I needed to gather a band around me if I was to pursue this musical style.

I then found Howard on violin and we played together as a duo for a wee while. The signature sound of gypsy music is the driving rhythm, called 'la pompe' and we needed to add a rhythm guitarist. Ross Marquis, one of my ex-students who I subverted and subtly influenced onto the dark path of gypsy jazz joined us. The only missing element now was some bottom end, which was supplied by Evelyn, my lovely wife.....'s left hand on the piano.


And lo.....Highland Hotclub dragged itself from the primordial ooze.

There are only 2 x types of music.... music you like and music you don't. We tend to lable and compartmentalise music into genres, and this is to the detriment of all concerned. Jazz can be the freest form of music and we're happy to take latin rhythms combined with harmonies from the Great American song book, Eastern European Klesmer violin and high octane guitar. All this is played with a great swing.

So at one of our gigs, you'll hear anything from bossa nova, tango, country swing, rock, pop, classical all served up in a jazz melting pot. We hope our 'kitchen sink' jazz is fully inclusive and our ears are always open.
