More than fifteen years ago, hot-jazz string band Hot Club Sandwich was founded in Olympia, WA with the instrumentation of guitars, bass, violin, mandolin and drums. Each band member is also a contributing composer and arranger, and everyone in the band sings. The forthcoming fifth Hot Club Sandwich recording, No Pressure, features a title track by the group’s 74-year-old guitarist Ray Wood, and a guest appearance by mandolinist David Grisman. As the name suggests, the Hot Club Sandwich repertoire carries a reverence for Gypsy Jazz along with folkloric influences from around the world that flourished during the same era. In some cases, the band has been known to venture into Western twang territory, including in collaboration with the late legend Dan Hicks.

Choroloco is a Seattle based acoustic trio specializing in choro, a highly melodic and rhythmic instrumental form of Brazilian popular music. They play traditional, modern, and original choro in a classic trio formation (7-string guitar, bandolim or cavaquinho, and pandeiro), sometimes augmented with vibraphone. They strive to stay as close to the music’s roots as possible while letting their own experience influence the music.
