There’s radio-friendly country music and then there is country music by bands like Hot Club of Cowtown. This trio, fronted by Elana James, specializes in heritage strings, hillbilly picking, and a very fine violin. The group likes to fuse jazz and country music, proving the two genres can work together beautifully. Their 2013 album, Rendezvous in Rhythm mixed hot jazz and gypsy music to great effect.
