Jim Wallace – Gypsy Project
Matt and Phreds
Jim Wallace guitar / Andrew Meyer clarinet / Andrzej Baranek – piano / Tim Williams – bass / Ric Weedon – drums
Featuring a foot-stomping mix of traditional Gypsy Jazz alongside the bands own exhilarating arrangements of contemporary pop songs from the modern era, there’s something for jazz aficionados and music lovers alike. Alongside Jim’s virtuosic Django Reinhardt-inspired lead guitar the band features the improvisational talents of some of the North West’s finest Gypsy Jazz soloists in Andrzej Baranek (accordion) and Andrew Meyer (clarinet), backed up by a stellar swinging Gypsy rhythm section. Rarely has such a delicate balance been successfully struck between the artistic and the absurd.
Come and take a peek whats on Django’s playlist as these talented, humorous and charismatic individuals tear through the music of Britney Spears and alike, whilst paying a respectful homage to the unrivalled swinging sounds of The Quintette du Hot Club de France.
