The Hot Club of Jupiter were drawn together by a shared love of the music of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli. With the addition of Jon Shenoy on clarinet (Ronnie Scott’s Big Band, Draw By Four) the band have now broadened their influences to include straight ahead jazz, New Orleans grooves and French Surrealism.
Earlier this year the band launched their 2nd album Vs London, a collection of standards and originals written about their home city. With the recording of their latest record, the band realised that much of their repertoire, drawn from both the American songbook and music hall tunes favoured by Stephane and Django, had a direct connection to the city where they perform.
Come and listen to them explore the rich history of London as a home and inspiration for musicians.
