    Their well rehearsed and lightning fast swing brings the Parisian jazz manouche of the 1930's alive and the audience to it's feet. The musical genre has undergone a tremendous resurgence in popularity for it's sophisticated yet sentimental sound and swinging precise rhythm, often light hearted and whimsical, sometimes aching with melancholy. It was guitarist Jean Baptiste “Django “ Reinhardt and violinist Stephane Grappelli along with their Quintet of the Hot Club of France who eventually codified this fusion of swing, American jazz and manouche (traditional gypsy music).
