Amazing stuff, Stephane Grapelli and Django meet Hank Williams! A modern take on 1940's Western Swing - really good, toe tapping, lively good mood music. An eye opener into the South Western state's melting pot - jazz, swing, bluegrass, blues, breakdown, honky-tonk, folksy and cajun all in one. A joy.

HC needs another album 11 Jun. 2000
By Vince Mayfield - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
As soon as I bought the Hot Jazz CD, I went looking for Tall Tales. Too bad I found it in the pop section rather than the country or near bluegrass where it belongs. I am totally impressed with this group and play these two disks more than the other 70 or so artists I have, combined. The female singer has an awesome 40's type voice and in a way reminds me of Mandy Barnett. The instrumentals are extremely well done, though I wish they had left "Polka dot and Moonbeams" on Tall Tales a complete instrumental. If you are looking for a western swing album, but don't mind a jazz blend, this is the group for you. They need to get their next album out soon!

Fun playing, but hold the vocals 16 Nov. 2003
By Ronald Levao - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Bold, joyous playing, at times precise, at times reckless, make this a treat to listen to. But be prepared for some weak vocals (by two of the three band members). Lovers of old country are not sticklers for staying on key, and know there's a great deal of expressive power in the deliberate roughness of Bill Monroe. Vern Williams and others. But crooning that goes flat provokes more wincing than dancing. Still--a talented and fun group gets my qualified yeehaw.

Magnificent music, toe tapping, joyous and beautiful! 2 Aug. 2001
By Quentin Sadler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have only recently discovered Western Swing, what I've been missing! I come from the UK, and we only hear the commercial country over here - I have only just heard hank Williams Senior and I am 36!
Tall Tales is the finest CD I have bought for many a year, fresh, hot, uplifting and boy does it swing - put on your dancing shoes mumma there's going to be a ball in cowtown. Do yourselves a favour, buy it... when I play it I get a warm, happy glow.

Refreshing, upbeat, and infinitely optimistic 29 Oct. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Hot Club of Cowtown is a spectacular band. I heard them on WHRB (95.5 FM in Cambridge, Mass.), The Hillbilly at Harvard radio show. I have also seen them in concert twice and urge the whole world to check them out! Their music (both live and on CD) is contagious, warm and toe-tapping fun. Unlike most musicians their age (20-something) who are recording dark, whiney and unoriginal scree, Hot Club (two guys and a gal) have re-awakened a true American tradition: Westerm Swing; and reintroduced a new generation to the brilliance of Bob Wills, Cindy Walker and the rest of the Western Swing family. Very very very good stuff. You will play it over and over.

Terrific. 17 Sept. 1999
By Arthur D. May - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The only thing better that listening to this CD is hearing them live. More music out of only three instruments than I thought was possible. It's spooky to think that these twenty-somethings can do western swing as well as the traveling bands of the 40's and 50's! If you see them live you will want to adopt the fiddle player.
