Michael and Ted,

I'm interested in hearing about how both of you originally came to this music. What made you pursue it in the way you have? I'm always fascinated to hear people's histories.

Thanks,

-Paul

    Great Topic, Paul!

    I would love to see Scot and Jack included in this inquiry…

    Best,

    Hi Paul...I first heard django back in when I was in High School (1989). A fiddler I knew played him for me....I'll never forget that day. Unfortunately, DjanoBooks didn't exist back then (ha ha), so it was really difficult to learn the style. I did a lot of transcribing over the years...but most of my performing was straight-ahead jazz. There was simply no outlet for this music back then...

    Anyway, I got a Fulbright grant to study this music in Europe in 2001. That gave me the opportunity to study this music with some of the Gypsy masters of the style.
