Hot Club of Cowtown

When: Sat., Dec. 4, 8 p.m. 2010

"Can we get that violin player for my band?" That's what an impressed Bob Dylan might have said in 2005 about Hot Club of Cowtown's Elana James. Whatever the words were, violinist/ vocalist James ended up touring with Dylan after Hot Club opened for him and Willie Nelson during the pair's ballpark tour in the summer of 2004. On a series of gems released by the late HighTone Records and most recently on 2009's equally gemmy Wishful Thinking, that's how strong the sway of the Django-does-Dallas hot jazz and Bob Wills-honoring Western swing of James, guitarist/vocalist Whit Smith and bassist Jake Erwin sounds. —Rick Cornell
