Writing Music Monday: Jazzymuté – 1 by Jazzymuté

jazzymute-1-coverMore Creative Commons gypsy jazz. Jazzymuté is good stuff, although not quite up to GEM’s standards.

Translated (via Google), their note on the album reads:

On swings and festive rhythms, the Gironde quintet “Jazzymuté” takes the gypsy jazz spirit to add colors multiethnic music, exploring North Africa, Ireland, South America, some rock standards and the French song and, of course, the countries of Eastern Europe.

And about themselves:

The swing is … and elsewhere.

Background of Gypsy jazz with traditional rhythmic “pump”, Jazzymuté offers a festive mix of gypsy swing, oriental melodies and cosmopolitan influences of yesterday and today. With these songs both happy and melancholy that characterize the music of the East, mingle guitars, bass, cajon, sometimes the accordion to create a warm and energetic atmosphere.

It’s bright, creative, bouncy, and goes places you don’t always expect but which you (or I, at least) always enjoy, such as the track “Agent Double Zéro”.
