James Mason & The Djangophiles

James Mason & The Djangophiles

Our main influence is our namesake…the great Belgian/French Gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt, who together with Stephane Grappeli formed the famous “Hot club of France” in 1934, and based on their collaborations and the Gypsy guitar styling’s of Django, a whole new style of Jazz was developed….called Le jazz hot .

Django Reinhardt has astounded and thrilled numerous generations of guitar players and jazz lovers with his amazing command of the guitar and his influence is evident even today.

This music has an infectious driving rhythm and incorporates most of the standard pop and jazz tunes of the 20′s, 30’s, 40’s, and 50’s …. As well as many modern day compositions.
