After the last crossover CD “Gypsy R-Evolution”, ranking in the Top 10 of Worldmusic Charts, the band finally went back to their roots. Fresh Female Vocals, Django Reinhard – Beats and hot swing rhythms in the style of the Roaring Twenties and Thirties flock together with a pinch of Jazz and cool contemporary grooves.

joschoTwo virtuosos of the strings sought and found each other: On the one hand, the master guitarist from Mönchengladbach, Joscho Stephan, on the other, the German-New-Zealander double bass player Olivier Holland. Ever since the 1990s,the paths of these two exceptional musicians have crossed in joint projects. The two artists always find new ideas and inspiration for their playing, which gave rise
to a collaborative studio effort, where the two artists bundled their creative energies to form an exciting fusion style that also gave the album its title: “Gypsy Meets Jazz”.The two musicians are joined by Stephan’s father Günter on rhythm guitar, bass Max Schaaf, violinist Sebastian Reimann and percussionist Thomas Kukulies.Together they create a fascinating musical kaleidoscope with compositions by the two string virtuosos themselves and refreshingly interpreted classics by Bireli Lagrène and Charlie Parker, Chick Corea and Django Reinhardt. “Gypsy Meets Jazz” shows two brilliant trailblazers engaging in an extremely creative and highly entertaining excursion that enriches both genres in a fascinating manner.

Eventually everything old is new again. If you survey today’s music scene you will observe a fusion of music happening. Elements of rock, blues, jazz and ethnic folk music are being combined in a variety of ways. This reminds us of when jazz was blooming. Classically trained musicians such as Eddie Lang, Joe Venuti and Stephane Grappelli were inflecting jazz music with their classical heritage. Likewise Django Reinhardt was infusing traditional folk music from the gypsy camps in France into jazz. Swing 42 fuses classically trained musicians with jazz musicians to create hot club jazz.
