the Hot Club of San Francisco

These folks have made some wonderful CDs over the years. Here they are, starting with most recent - featuring the entire gang in what is almost a retrospective!


This one is the quintet featuring 
all their various violinists. 

Sometimes all at once! 

It's fresh and very good! 


With Jenny Scheinman on violin 


With Julian Smedley on violin 


An interesting first outing...this one features different vocalists (including Barbara Dane and Maria  Muldaur), instrumentalists, etc. 

To order these CDs, if they're not in your local shop, contact Paul via the wonders of email. He says that if you just want to do the email banter with him, that's OK too!

Oh yes, one more thing

Paul has a couple of very good instructional videos out that you should know about. They're on Homespun, so you know they're of good quality, and you can get them from Gryphon in Palo Alto by contacting them here
