Everyone a dazzling star. The Stars of Gypsy Swing. This is a musical imprint of our patron’s unique personalities, highlighting their talent, energy, compositions, melodies and Django Reinhardt’s music.
Some were born to Django’s music, others gravitated to it, all have left their indelible mark on this style. Individually displaying their singular guitar style, mastery and personal interpretations, all these incredible musicians have nurtured and evolved the genre globally to renewed heights of popularity.
This CD was only made possible by their generously donated tracks. The purpose: to elevate and share Django’s legacy, whilst assisting Le QuecumBar’s objective of supporting and promoting Django’s Gypsy Swing, its Gypsy heritage and its musicians worldwide.
It has taken over a year to put together this unique eclectic and exciting mix of guitar masterpieces that includes original and unreleased material from John Jorgenson, Hank Marvin (his first Gypsy Swing guitar recording) and Biel Ballester.
All 26 tracks on this double album were contributed by the 13 elite global Gypsy Swing guitar patrons of Le QuecumBar, London’s world premier Gypsy Swing venue. www.quecumbar.co.uk
