Django Reinhardt, the first European Jazz Guitar Hero - Performance Seminar
United Reformed Church is a good setting on Bank Holiday Monday afternoon for a presentation/performance celebrating the music of Django Reinhardt.
This will be an illustrated performance of Django’s music by The Wrong Notes, a quartet specialising in Hot Club-style gypsy jazz. Django Reinhardt, one of the great improvisers of the swing era, was arguably the first major non-American jazz artist and guitar hero.
He dazzled Parisian audiences and visitors from around the world in the 1930s & 40s with astonishing virtuosity. Django’s music fused American swing, classical music and gypsy music to create a unique sound, and he is venerated by a whole host of musicians from jazz greats including Duke Ellington, B.B.King, George Harrison & Willie Nelson. Professor Hampton-Reeves will discuss Django’s achievements and influences on modern music.
This event has arrived via our UCLan network.
