Product Description

Product Description

The third album from this immensely popular band, led by guitar maestro John Etheridge. Inspired by Grappelli and Reinhardt but with an individual approach, originality, flair and virtuoso playing.

'Sweet Chorus' was born from the desire of John Etheridge to pay tribute to the great Stephane Grappelli, with whom he played with for many years. The band has existed for 10 years and this is their 3rd album. Material is drawn from a wide range of sources-not only the 'Hot Club' repertoire - but originals and tunes that are more contemporary. The group continues to feature legendary veteran guitar master John Etheridge, acclaimed violinist Chris Garrick and the propulsive groove of Dave Kelbie (rhythm guitar) and Andy Crowdy (bass). Beautifully executed - this album flows with a timeless and seamless swing, celebrating this immortal music.

Review

(4 stars) A small but beautifully formed band...deft violin solos...the group scampers through a spry collection of standards and originals. -- Sunday Times, (Clive Davis), August 23, 2009

(4 stars) Etheridge's full and emphatic sound mixed with superb violinist Chris Garrick, makes for an ebullient musical chemistry. -- The Guardian, (John Fordham), August 14, 2009

There is much to appreciate on this fine album...Etheridge's passionate solos...Chris Garrick's inventive, resourceful violin playing at any tempo. -- Jazzwise, (Charles Alexander), November 2009

They perform the music in expert and authentic fashion, spiced up with the occasional more contemporary twist. -- The Scotsman, August 24, 2009

Format: Audio CD
John Etheridge is as versatile and accomplished a guitarist as many more famous and lauded players. One day perhaps the listening public will realise what many jazz fans already know, that John Etheridge is a superb musician who deserves much wider recognition for his contribution to the musical scene over the years.

'Small Hotel' is a highly accomplished and highly enjoyable album, designed primarily as a tribute to Django Reinhardt and the Hot Club sound. It mixes standards and own compositions to very pleasing effect. The final tune on the album, an Etheridge piece 'I Saw You Passing By' is a haunting little melancholic beauty, featuring some lovely violin from Chris Garrick that is so good that its worth acquiring this set for its presence alone. The band are terrific, the choice of material interesting and the standard of recording first rate. Have a listen to the energetic cover of 'Sven Come Eleven', the old Charlie Christian / Benny Goodman number. If you like it, you'll love 'Small Hotel'.

This homage to Django Reinhardt and the hot club of Paris is a delightful CD. It has spent many weeks in my car CD player and makes driving far less stressful.

A Great Recording 14 April 2013
By John Seeler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
John Etheridge is a great guitarist. This CD pays tribute to John's association with the great Stephane Grappelli whom he toured with early in his career. The Guitar partnership of Etheridge and Martin Taylor is epitomised in the "Stephane Grappelli - At The Winery Audio CD" and their interplay on "Minor Swing" is one of the greatest recordings ever!

Sweet Chorus is a tribute to his association with Grappelli and is loving as well as spirited given Etheridge's penchant for "bringing a constant sense of adventure and surprise to the music." Christian Garrick in the Grappelli role is reverent and accomplished.

The Gypsy Swing of the Hot Club of France is dynamic, vital and fun style of music. This recording uses this formidable baseline to pay tribute and inject new life into the form.

John Etheridge is a Guitar Master and his "Sweet Chorus" group is a joy! If you love guitar or Gypsy Swing, then you will appreciate this accomplished group and wonderful recording.
