Talking about the new Stratospheerius album, I thought I should mention another side of Joe Deninzon as well.
With Stratospheerius, you get progressive rock with an electric violin that makes you think of Zappa, Hendrix or Vai. In the Joe Deninzon Trio however, it's all about the gypsy jazz of Stephane Grapelli and Django Rheinhardt.
The tracklist is excellent, including original compositions by Joe Deninzon and by Bob Bowen (on bass), alongside tunes by Steely Dan, Alice In Chains, Jimmy Webb, Fats Waller and Radiohead.
And I forgot to mention Django Rheinhardt's 'Nuages'.
