Mississippi Hot Club is inspiring a new generation of young swingers in Minnesota. With reverence and chops, Mississippi Hot Club’s new album, Swing Cities, shines light on the bold music of Django Reinhardt from a fresh pop-oriented perspective.

Recorded at Wild Sound Recording Studio in Minneapolis, Swing Cities masterfully captures MHC’s spunky performances, featuring an upbeat approach to jazz manouche, hot club jazz, and gypsy jazz. Joshua Parlanti’s engaging improvisation on lead guitar is complimented by the fierce solos of violinist Alissa Jacobsen. This fearless duo is supported by la pompe rhythm guitarists Ian Stenlund and Luke Zupan, along with airtight upright bassist Joseph Downing.

Spanning several eras of Django’s repertoire, Parlanti conveys his melodies on acoustic and electric guitar, playing with a recognizable “Gypsy” flair. His approach is soulful and refreshing, hitting on the more frisky verve that people in the 1930s heard in Django’s playing.

Coffeehouse and gallery open at 6:00pm and music starts at 7:00pm. Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 at the door. Tickets can be purchased at Hardt’s Music, 115 East 3rd St. in Winona, until 4:00pm on October 27, or through Eventbrite.
