Hot Town Makes Best of 2015 Lists

24th January 2016

NPR writer Francis Davis included Ghost Train Orchestra's Hot Town in his Top 10 List of 2015 Jazz Albums. Hot Town was also included in year-end lists by writers Dave Lynch of AllMusic and Scott Yanow. Hot Town is Ghost Train Orchestra's third album, picking up where Hothouse Stomp left off, with guest Colin Stetson on bass saxophone.

"At once faithful and resolutely postmodern in its approach to the most vintage material jazz has to offer, Ghost Train Orchestra's antic Hot Town delivers...the sound of surprise can come from music long past, music only those of us in the here-and-now have never heard before." -- Francis Davis, NPR

"Carpenter retains the feel and atmosphere, succeeding at being creative within the style of the era...heartily recommended" -- Scott Yanow, BEST JAZZ ALBUMS OF 2015

"The arrangements are inventive, and the solos come fast and furious. Hot Town is all about fun." -- Steve Greenlee, JAZZTIMES EDITOR'S PICK

"The Ghost Train Orchestra features musicians who consistently operate outside the mainstream, and Hot Town proves no one covers singular jazz from a bygone era better than these singular jazzers of today." -- Dave Lynch, ALLMUSIC
