  1. Some friends went to Washington state last week for Djangofest Northwest and picked up a disc by Tom Conway called Hot Gypsy Nights. Very swinging stuff and great solid bass playing. I was pleased to see TBer Marcus Johnson's name on the liner.
    Rick Veras, the fiddle player in my little gypsy jazz ensemble is a former student of Willy Wainwright.

    care to let us know where we can buy this?

    Thanks for the kind words, Pete. We had a lot of fun doing that CD. Tom tells me that it's available through mail order from Tropical Disc, I haven't been to their website, and I'd guess you could find it with Google. You can reach Tom directly at thcmaui@aol.com. The CD is really new, and Tom is making it available through a variety of sources. This quartet performs under the name "Gypsy Dream", and we're in the process of writing originals for a group CD next time around.
