Swanee River - Jelinek's banjo opens as if to say "Ready? Here we go." This new and fun version of the Foster classic is indeed a fast trip down the old river. Hard swing like this is hard to find anymore. Nuits De Saint-Germain Dos Pres - Pleads the question; "What would Django say to this?",as if to transport the listener to these very nights. Close your eyes, and you are there! J' Attendrai - Violinist Eva Berky joins the ensemble on this romantic piece, and will have the listener looking for a dance partner. Stojka and the rhythm section maintain a solid downbeat. Bei mir bist Du Scheen - Stojka kicks this grand old favorite into overdrive, and tugs the listener along as if through a crowded cabaret where we meet many old friends. I definitely sense the spirit of the "Hot Club" here. Avalon - Although familiar to many standard lovers like myself, and with an interesting history, Stojka's treatment takes off in staccato fashion to make this song truly his own. Nuages - A beautiful entrance marked by Berky's "from the heart" violin. She plays Grappelli to Stojka's Reinhart. The listener would swear that these beloved gypsies are alive again. Limehouse Blues - The music that is missed so much today returns with a fresh, crisp feeling.The sound of this ensemble was so good, that this reviewer felt like an audience of one. Petite Fleur - We are allowed to take a deep breath here, and what an essence! The band delivers a remarkable rendition of the Sidney Bechet original. Undecided - Good brush snare work is so rare. But on track 9 we hear the talent of Wiederhofer. It would be nice to hear more individual soloing from the rhythm section on this Fats Waller lieder. Song For My Daddy - Yes, it is heartfelt and soulful. But notice the guitar choruses and how they exchange with the excellent bass figures. An intrinsically complex and beautiful tribute. To budding musicians it says; "Practice your scales, and see what is possible." Just One Of Those Things - OK, you've heard Sinatra sing it, now hear Stojka improvise it.I love Cole Porter arrangements, and this one will fit nicely in any collection. A tempo change adds an interesting ending courtesy of bass and drums. Sweet Sue - Made sweeter by another Stojka-Berky collaboration. Appropriate strumming embellishment is added by Jelineck. Schee is' so a Ringlspu - A rousing finish that makes the listener want to ask for another round of bier. In closing may I say this; The bohemian composer Dvorak in the 19th century challenged America to create it's own music. This we did, and now new and talented Europeans are re-constructing it, and raising the bar. What will come next? Hopefully more music like what is heard here.
