Burnside Album Details
Jorgenson, John Quintet, Ultraspontane
The John Jorgenson Quintet features guitarist John Jorgenson, a founding member of the Desert Rose Band, the Hellecasters, and six-year member of Elton John's band. Artists ranging from Barbara Streisand to Bonnie Raitt to Earl Scruggs have sought out Jorgenson's guitar work. It has been 3 years since the release of Franco-American Swing but fans will soon find out the wait has been worth it for Ultraspontane, a 12-track collection of pure musical artistry in the tradition of Gypsy Jazz. As proven in the last release, John and company do not just recreate the hot jazz that blazed through Europe in the 1920s and 30s. The JJQ have expanded upon this extraordinary musical genre to keep it modern and marvelous.
