gypsy jazz guitarist Django Reinhard’s “hot swing” style and music
caused a sensation in Europe in the 30’s and 40’s and is just as "hot"
today. Django along with famed Stephane Grappelli were the stars of The
Quintet of the Hot Club of France, which defined this style of music,
known as "Le Jazz Hot"!
DJANGO was a gypsy guitar
virtuoso, called a genius by many. His influence lives on through
recordings and talented musicians who continue to enjoy and appreciate
his very special and original style of swing music...which today we
even call "Hip Hot!" The DJANGO REINHARDT FESTIVAL, produced by Pat
Phillips and Ettore Stratta, serves to preserve and carry forward the
musical legacy of DJANGO as well as the many possibilities of
creativity that can grow from his enormous talent and inspiration by
presenting the top players in the world of this music.
