AllMusic Review by

Fiddler Elana James (née Fremerman) and guitar whiz Whit Smith are the formidable front line of the Hot Club of Cowtown, who have been mixing Western Swing and 1920s hot jazz since the mid-1990s. This collection features some of the finest moments from the band's first decade or so, as Smith's Jimmy Bryant-meets-Django Reinhardt guitar and Fremerman's Stephane Grappelli-jams-with-Bob Wills fiddle dig into both original tunes and old country and jazz gems with equal aplomb.
