Hot-swing jazz, direct from France! Dorado Schmitt & Django Festival Allstars carry on the musical legacy of “gypsy” guitarist Django Reinhardt and violinist Stephane Grappelli, one of the great partnerships in European jazz history. Entering their 16th successful year in America, with a home at New York’s Birdland and major national tours, the Allstars, led by guitar virtuoso Dorado Schmitt, hark back to the ‘30s and ‘40s to re-create France’s Hot Club Quintette. Their interpretations and arrangements of this music of the past, original compositions, and hip improvisations put a fresh spin on Reinhardt’s lasting style. One of the most in-demand “gypsy jazz” guitarists in the business, Dorado Schmitt has played alongside musicians Paquito D’Rivera, Joe Lovano, Harry Allen, and many others. Born in France, Schmitt performs with musicians of this style throughout the world and has been a star attraction at major festivals and the Django Reinhardt NY Festival at Birdland.
