The gypsy-jazz band Hot Club of Baltimore joins Tom in the studio for a live session, playing a couple of tunes from the songbook of the legendary Django Reinhardt.  Hot Club Baltimore is a four-year-old local trio that includes Michael Joseph Harris and Sami Arefin on acoustic guitars and Eddie Hrybyk (pr. RYE-bik) on upright bass. They'll join a roster of 50+ top local bands, soloists and singers at this weekend's first-ever Baltimore JazzFest, a free event inspired by Baltimore JazzAlliance founder Barry Glassman and produced by current BJA President Ian Rashkin.  Baltimore JazzFest is happening Saturday, October 1st, from noon to 8:30pm at Druid Hill Park.  Rain or shine.
