Gypsy Jazz is said to have been started by guitarist Jean "Django" Reinhardt in the 1930s.  As its origins are largely from France, it is often called by the French name Jazz Manouche.  Reinhardt was noted for combining a dark, chromatic gypsy flavor with the swing articulation of the period. 


The Heartstrings Hot Club performs the very best in traditional and postmodern jazz manouche, creating the perfect atmosphere for any venue or gathering desiring to emulate the exciting sounds of the 1930's French jazz scene.
