le jazz hot

Gypsy jazz, gypsy swing, le jazz hot – whatever you want to call it, you know the sound even if the description is elusive.

This week’s World of Music celebrates the 100th birthday (1/23/1910) of the legendary gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt. We’ll pay homage to the master with his own recordings, with like-minded successors Biréli Lagrène and Romane, and with an international selection of gypsy jazz guitarists.

We’ll check out some of the diverse “Hot Club” groups that carry on the gypsy swing legacy in cities like Detroit, Philly, San Francisco, and Austin, TX. On the homefront, we’ll hear how gypsy jazz is alive and well in the nimble hands of folks like Will Patton, and Swing Noire (with their brand new recording!).

World of Music is a plucky, swinging mix of blues, jazz, poetry, and world music every Monday from 3-5pm ET on the Radiator.  Online, or at 105.9FM if you’re listening in Burlington, VT.
