DJANGO REINHARDT NY FESTIVAL AT BIRDLAND JAZZ CLUB
NOVEMBER 2-7, 2010
, along with Stephanie Grappelli, formed the Quintet of the Hot Club of France in the 30's in France defining this new style of music known as "Le Hot Jazz" which became very successful. The DJANGO REINHARDT NY FESTIVAL serves to preserve and carry forward Django's legacy.
This year, we celebrate Django's 100th Birthday
(2010) and also George Schmitt
, patriarch of the Schmitt family who passed away this year. As with 'gypsy' culture, the elder Schmitt, a musician, was teacher, father and grandfather and kept the legacy of Django alive and passed the 'hot jazz' style from one generation to another as well as will be seen with his son Dorado and his grandsons, Samson and Amati.
