Alex Pangman's Hot 3

Alex Pangman - vocals
Drew Jurecka - fiddle
Nathan Hiltz - guitar
John MacMurchy - bass sax

Although Alex Pangman grew up a couple of generations late to have sung with Teddy Wilson, the vibrant vocalist is proud to be known as Canada's Sweetheart of Swing. With pipes aplenty, Juno nominee Pangman possesses the requisite taste, talent and the historical knowledge of an avid record collector to breathe new life into the sturdy standards of the classic jazz era. A superb song stylist with growing compositional chops, the gifted scene-maker has built a loyal fanbase amongst jazz listeners and dancers alike. Her most recent project is called “Alex Pangman’s Hot 3” and uses the rare Venuti-Lang/Rollini lineup here of fiddle (Drew Jurecka), acoustic guitar (Nathan Hiltz) and John MacMurchy (bass saxophone) to create this unique sound. The album was recorded in New Orleans directly to 78rpm cutting machine for the Justin Time Record label. "The result on CD has a beguiling kind of Spumante pop, with a lovely rough feel. It is, actually, like a short, blissful drinking session. There's Sweethearts On Parade, that snappy, roguish Guy Lombardo chestnut from 1928 and a wondrous version of the standard It's The Talk of the Town that becomes an epic of regret and qualms” John Doyle, Globe and Mail Best of Culture 2017.
