'Tramontane' 2014

12 exciting and vibrant new tracks see Bartoune collaborating with John Blakeley (of Sheelanagig fame) on drums. The original swing sound of their first album enters new musical territories, as the band expand and solidify their already strong and unique identity. We have the addition of electric guitar, as well as clarinet and more vocals.

'Bartoune' 2011 "...a unique and compelling Hot Club style outfit, both live and on record. The group displays how top-drawer musicians moving away from standard line-ups can often present a delightful and fresh alternative. 12 tracks of upbeat, Mediterranean-tinged fun stream by in no time and encourage repeated listening, not just for the innovative mix of instruments but especially the individual playing, ensemble work and soloing spread right across this invigorating album."
