Few jazz legends have a more exotic mystique than Django Reinhardt, the four fingered Belgian-born gypsy guitarist and banjo player who led the legendary Parisian ensemble known as the Quintet of the Hot Club of France in the 1930’s and 40’s. Out of their sizzling, infectious, and swinging style, the musical genre known as “gypsy jazz” was born. An international quintet led by virtuoso accordionist Julien Labro will bring the smoking hot gypsy jazz style to life in this exhilarating performance.
