Jazz Gitan is an acoustic jazz ensemble that carries on the tradition of gypsy swing created by Django Reinhardt together with Stephane Grappelli during their domination of the Paris jazz scene in the 1930s.
The music of Jazz Gitan is the swinging jazz of the ’30s and ’40s, plus a cross-section of songs from the modern Gypsy jazz repertoire. Don Price is the lead guitarist for Jazz Gitan.
The group is celebrating a new CD release called “Djangit” featuring eight new originals. It includes Gypsy, latin, blues and jazz styles combined to create a unique foot-tapping and high-energy Parisian influenced experience.
The band has performed for all types of venues, events and festivals both regionally and locally and assuredly provides exciting, engaging music for all to enjoy. This appearance is the kick off of its 2014 Summer Tour.
There will be special guests and prizes.
