I have just completed my first update of the staff and artists page of the DiJ website. Here are some highlights of what/whom you'll find there:
- We're planning a strong swing musette component this year ('bout time!) with Marcel Loeffler and his son Cedric on board, along with Christophe Astolfi.
- Some relative newcomers whose work you may not be familiar with yet: Kourosh Kanani and Duved Dunayevsky.
- Someone I've been wanting to bring for years: Emmanuel Kassimo.
- Someone I've heard about from the earliest days of my exposure to Gypsy jazz, a teacher of masters: Serge Krief.
- On violin, old friend Tim Kliphuis and new talent Fiona Monbet.
We'll be bringing more staff on soon, but come by and have a look:
