Ok, you're thinking who? Right, nobody I've talked to has ever heard of Rez Abassi
. He has a web site
and the only mention of Django is on his schedule. In FB discussions with the Freight & Salvage booking agent, Peter Williams, he stated that he wanted to throw a "curve" with this booking, which is Rez learning a set of Django's music. Rhythm Future and the Gypsy Chix follow. Other acts for the 3 day fest include Boulou and Elios Ferre, HCSF, Barrio Manouche, John Jorgenson with Martin Taylor, etc. I'm all for introducing a new performer with a related style, but I'm not sure about Rez. Unfortunately, this would be the only night I could attend and I've seen most of the other performers. Any thoughts?
