A Light Left On Present Acoustic Sessions with The Djangoliers – Gypsy Jazz
Thu, April 13 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Presenting the best in local acoustic talent in Colchester, giving a platform for excellent original songwriters to showcase their work. This will be available for free on the top Floor of TWM.
The Djangoliers – Gypsy Jazz Quartet – Taking their cue from Django Reinhardt’s war-years line-up, where Hubert Rostaing’s clarinet replaced Stephane Grapelli’s violin, The Djangoliers specialize in performing music both written and inspired by the late, great French guitarist. As well as performing many of Django’s classic arrangements and compositions such as Nuages, Swing 42 and Manoir Des Mes Rêves, they also perform tunes from the more contemporary canon of the style now known as ‘Gypsy Jazz’.
Support on the night from A light Left on themselves. Upbeat & light-hearted original trio from Sunny Clacton on Sea showcased at the Montreux Jazz Cafe in London & featured on 6music by Tom Robinson. Received high praise for their writing from BBC Essex DJ Veena V; Tony Fisher & Sue Marchant from BBC Radio Cambridge. The Musician’s Union has described them as ‘melodic acoustic folk with striking lead guitar, subtle strings and blissful harmony.
