Non-virtuosic Gypsy Jazz

Postby cap_django » Mon Apr 24, 2006 10:08 pm

A contradiction, to say the least, with the modern trend in gypsy jazz.

I'm still looking for guitar players who can be extremely expressive without being fast. Fapy comes to mind.

Can you provide me with other names that might help me find what I'm looking for?

Thanks.

Lollo Meyer is another who does not feel the need to lift weights and look in the mirror as he flexes his muscles during solos.

Tcha Limberger, Koen De Cauter, Jokke Schreurs, and Harold Berghuis fit that description.

Londons very own Stublag - Mr Stuart Blagden is a gentleman who can play fast and slow, and is extemely expresive and full of creative unique ideas when playing ballads, seriously.

Great, thanks for the suggestions!

Can you guys suggest some records, then?

I figured Django was a given... I could listen to him all day everyday. Unbelievable lyricism on the guitar. :shock:
Live in Vancouver?
Enjoy the music of Django?

Patrick Saussois: many recordings, including all Alma Sinti albums, Passion Gitane (with Daniel Colin) etc. etc.

Yeah, I picked up on the sarcasm... Moreno kills it on the guitar every time. What a monster he is!

A guy who's not a shredder, but also not genteel, is Dave Biller.

Album for sale here:

Interview here:

It's a little change of pace from the European sensibility of the players listed above. I just wish he'd start up his Gypsy Jazz sideline gigs again--his main bag is American Roots music (western swing, hokum swing, etc.), but he got way into Django and the idiom before he cut his Gypsy Jazz album. I think he's got it.
