Hot Club of Cowtown: Dev’lish Mary

With their third release, The Hot Club of Cowtown continues its wild romp through the dance halls of Texas and the bistros of Paris of the 1920’s and 30’s. These young Austin musicians are devotees of Le Jazz Hot, personified by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli of The Hot Club of France, and the more homespun melodies of Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys.
