Built from guitarist Les Choy’s desire to create a string-band based jazz ensemble, GYPSY JAZZ SOCIAL CLUB draws from a roster of versatile musicians inhabiting Colorado’s western slope. Gypsy Jazz is the accepted moniker for a genre of music that was all but single-handedly developed by Django Reinhardt, a visionary gypsy guitar player of Belgian descent who successfully integrated American jazz, traditional gypsy melodies, popular tunes from the 1920’s to modern times, and a respectable selection of original compositions. Mysterious yet strangely familiar, semi-obscure but always swinging, this unique form of music and Gypsy Jazz Social Club are a perfect match.
