“For those unfamiliar with Gypsy Swing, the sound might first seem reminiscent of some kind of rockabilly jazz gone wild with strumming magic. The numbers by Beso Negro developed into a full bodied delight of romantic undertones, heated statements, cultural explorations, and passionate numbers. Their tempo and approach was intoxicating as well as darkly seductive. The "black kiss" is aptly named for its haunting surges of passion that catch listeners unaware as they might initially believe its all about lighthearted string action only to be drawn into a dance of love that weaves an inescapable web. Beso Negro draws in fans who never want to escape their net.”
“Favorite gypsy guitar”
“Some bands have it all—a great name, great chemistry, great story and great music. Such is the case with the hottest band currently rising from the ranks of the North Bay music scene: Beso Negro!”
“This sensational album, the first full-length recording from Marin's next generation gypsy jazz band, couldn't have a more fitting title. This incendiary acoustic quintet is on fire, scorching through 10 tracks of original hot jazz that would make Django Reinhardt burn with pride.”
“Beso Negro's not your father's gypsy jazz band”
