Gypsy Jazz or “Jazz Manouche” is a strain of passionate, fiery, and virtuosic guitar and violin based music to roar out of France in the 1930s and 1940’s. This uniquely European interpretation of American Jazz has a fascinating origin, history, and is still one of the most popular branches of jazz today. Join guitarist John Tuohy as he discusses and dissects this interesting topic through the lens of it’s progenitors; guitarist Django Reinhardt and violinist Stephane Grapelli. As always, John will play some guitar arrangements of some pieces , in addition to watching rare video clips of these marvelous performers.
Admission is $10. Links will be sent out to attendees one-day prior to the lecture.
