In celebration of Django Reinhardt’s 100th birthday, guitar virtuoso Frank Vignola, a leading proponent of Reinhardt’s gypsy jazz style of playing, has assembled a topnotch quintet for a searing tribute to one of his earliest musical influences.
Only a musician the caliber of Frank Vignola, an accomplished and influential guitarist in his own right, could dare tackle the monumental task of honoring the centennial of the legendary Django Reinhardt.
“How versatile is Frank Vignola? He’s collaborated with Lionel Hampton and Madonna, covers Mozart and Black Sabbath on the same record, and [was] one of Les Paul’s favorite guitarists.” –The Boston Globe
