The Hot Club of Cowtown

The Best Of (Shout Factory)

Recently regrouped after a two-year break, Hot Club of Cowtown returns with a hit comp courtesy of formidable vault imprint Shout Factory. Bookended by stomping live cuts of "Ida Red" and "Orange Blossom Special," the 20 tracks cull magnificently from the local trio's previous five efforts of hot jazz and Western swing fired by Elana James' smoking fiddle and sultry twang.
