Memories of Django Reinhardt and the Hot Club Quintet he led with Stephane Grappelli arise every time the venerable violin giant teams with a master guitarist, as he does with Joe Pass on this live recording from Copenhagen's Tivoli Concert Hall. But it is doubtful that, chair for chair, the Hot Club at its best ever had the power of this all-star quintet, which also includes Oscar Peterson's piano, Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen's bass, and Mickey Roker's drums. These six extended performances are especially valuable for giving Grappelli an uncommon opportunity to stretch out on record. The most fitting summary of Skol may be "'s cool."
