Hot Club de Norvège is one of the truly original groups in the genre. Their traditional string jazz quartet has a mature sound like no other and is often extended when violinist Finn Hauge swich to his chromatic harmonica. Jon Larsen is one of the iconic guitar player in the gypsy jazz genre. His melodic improvisations are composing in real time.
