19 July Thursday – Chasing the Moon Gypsy Jazz
$17.00 – $69.00
Thursday 19 July, 2018, 8.30pm
Chasing the Moon brings alive the exuberant and romantic sounds of Gypsy Jazz in the tradition of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli.
There is a fresh flavour to the way different styles are combined, – a mouth-watering mix of hot club and the blues, a dash of folk, lashings of swing, flirting with Latin rhythms and modern elements too. The joy is infectious.
The 6 piece ensemble envelopes you in an almost orchestral sound combining vocals, violin, guitar, double bass, sax, piano accordion and drums.
The darkly chromatic gypsy sound is counterpointed with the light hearted flair of American swing and the ambience of the Parisian café is there in the accordion of Garry Steel and the inclusion of songs by Piaf as well as instrumentals in the famous French Musette style.
Kathy Bluff – Vocals and Violin
Paul Burjan – Saxophones and Flute
John Blenkhorn – Guitar
Garry Steel – Piano Accordion
Jessica Dunn – Double Bass
Mike Quigley – Drums
Chasing the Moon’s CD, Nuages features a selection of gypsy jazz classics, Latin and swing and is available through CD Baby and iTunes.
“Like walking through a music festival in an Eastern European village” Simon Marnie, ABC Radio
