Five star international Gypsy jazz line up.
Guitar mastery, swinging Reinhardt classics mix with traditional European Gypsy repertoire. Undeniably the most loved and respected Gypsy musician on the planet, violin superstar Tcha Limberger, recently accorded the title by The Times “Polymath King of Gypsy music” joins forces with the guitar wizard and latest in line from the renowned dynasty of Gypsy guitarists, Mozes Rosenberg.
“A project originating from a common passion of its members for traditional jazz styles and predominantly New Orleans and Swing. Groove is taken care of by two musicians whose resumes are longer than their arms: Dave Kelbie, a human metronome who combines the softness of genuine swing with enriched chords (regularly invited by masters such as Angelo Debarre and Fapy Lafertin) and Sébastien Girardot, a solid double-bass magician, with both a strong and agile style, highly solicited by famed jazz lineups (Michel Pastre Quintet, La Section Rythmique…). In a word: an Imperial rhythm section, no doubt one of the best of its kind and tied together in the Lejazzetal hall of fame project: Django à la Créole. Mozes Rosenberg, the newcomer to this project is no other than Stochelo Rosenberg’s younger brother. At 35 he already has 20 years’ experience and he is one of Gypsy Swing guitar’s newest gems. A brilliant heir to the Dutch informal ‘Gypsy guitar academy’, Mozes has achieved the development of his own voice despite the obvious connection to Stochelo Rosenberg’s legacy. A master of every modern guitar player’s skills (arpeggio, chord, and single note playing), Mozes illustrates himself with long, floating and sharp choruses, sometimes acrobatic, always remarkably formed and musical. If he occasionally blows proper musical torpedoes, he also knows that poetry lies in gentleness.”
