This project will focus on the guitar style initiated by Django Reinhardt that came to define Gypsy Jazz. This specifically entails technical aspects of performance such as rest-stroke picking, rhythmical aspects and other idioms of the guitar itself. I will demonstrate that these are the only substantial musical differences between Gypsy Jazz and Reinhardt’s American Contemporaries, and that the main differences involve instrumentation and consequently the idioms of the guitar. During the 1970s, Jazz Fusion and Free Improvisation were emerging in America, but this was also the case with Gypsy Jazz music.
