Due to the popularity of the Django Reinhardt NY Festival, the Producers are now bringing the great players of HOT JAZZ back in June/July as well as November, a mix of familiar faces and some ‘new’ along with top Jazz players as Guests. When the world’s greatest jazz violinist Stephane Grappelli teamed with the brilliant gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt to form the Quintet of the Hot Club of France, they created a style of music in the 30’s and 40’s that took Europe by storm and is as alive today as it was in it’s heyday. This romantic, melodic, virtuosic, happy, hot swinging music with incredible fingering known as “Le Hot Jazz” is celebrated and carried forward by The Django Reinhardt NY Festival appealing to all ages.
