“Gypsy” Jazz in the store May 7

Fitch Zach Davis Dale Farmer

 

Frank Fitch and Friends will be back in the store Sat. May 7, 11-1:30, to play so-called “gypsy” jazz.  This will be a real treat.  If you’re not familiar with guitarist Django Reinhardt or violinist Stephane Grappelli, or even if you do know their music, this is a great chance to hear some fabulous jazz.  It’s really listenable.  So come on out, grab a seat, and don’t forget to buy something.

 

Django Reinhardt      Django Reinhardt (1910-53) at the height of his powers. Of the Romany ethnic group, he was injured in a fire in his caravan in 1928.  Two fingers of his left hand were paralyzed.  It’s a wonder that after that he could play guitar at all, let alone brilliantly.
