about

This is Gadjo Guitars' first album. Recorded after only six months of forming the band and performing together. It features Jose Zarb, Nigel Date and Cameron Jones on acoustic guitars modeled after Selmer/Maccaferri style instruments. We recorded the album at Stan Valecos' studio in Blakehurst in Sydney in two midnight to dawn recording sessions after completing our evening gigs. Stan would later go on to become our full time bassist. All the songs on the album where recorded and performed together in the same room. Songs and arrangements where chosen and worked out on the fly. That being said. Although this is a spontaneous recording, we made every effort to make this sound as good as possible. The music is a mixture of old American jazz standards, Django Reinhardt tunes, modern gypsy jazz standards and an arrangement of a song from the film "Betty Blue"
