The DJANGO REINHARDT NY FESTIVAL is the first of its kind in America at the legendary club, BIRDLAND on West 44th Street in Manhattan.
Conceived by Producers Pat Philips & Ettore Stratta, this Festival is unique as it brings to America the top artists of the Django Reinhardt "hot swing" style of Jazz from Europe (many of whom are coming to our shores for the first time) and combining them with our own great Jazz stars as Guests!
The Festival pays tribute to the legendary guitarist, DJANGO, who became famous in the 20's and 30's when he teamed with the brilliant Jazz Violinist, STEPHANE GRAPPELLI, to form The Hot Club Quintette. This group became the rage of Europe performing the great American standards and Django originals in a virtuosic, infectious, melodic, hot swing style that took the music world by storm .
