About

The "Hot Club Swing" of gypsy jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt caused a sensation in Paris and Europe in the '20s and '30s--and it's just as popular today. In 2004, this vigorous celebration played to sold-out audiences at the Kennedy Center, prompting the Washington Post to call the performances "sweet and lowdown, swinging and sizzling hot." This year's line-up includes a French ensemble featuring guitarists Dorado Schmitt and Samson Schmitt, swing accordionist Ludovic Beier, and violinist Pierre Blanchard, plus American saxophonist Joel Frahm.
