Billet-Deux, the northwest modern gypsy jazz quintet, is proud to announce the release of their second CD - Deux".
The CD features the unique sound of the group which consists of acoustic solo guitarist Troy Chapman, cellist James Hinkley, bassist Michael Yocco, rhythm guitarist Josephina Hunner and drummer/percussionist Roger Bennett.
While the group found its roots in the sounds of Django Reinhardt, Stephane Grapelli and the Hot Club of France, Billet-Deux takes the genre in entirely new directions with a engaging modern sound.
Tracks on the new CD include Charles Mingus' Goodbye Porkpie Hat", Softly as in a Morning Sunrise", Dizzy Gillespie's Bebop", Wes Montgomery's Four on Six" (played in 3/4 time) and Tu vou fa L'Americano" from Italy!
The CD will be available from Billet-Deux's website, billet-deux.com, from cdbaby.com, Seattle area CD stores or various online digital outlet's including itunes and digstation.
Billet-Deux invites you to listen to and enjoy Deux. We are proud of this latest work and hope that the joy of the music inspires our fans.
