It was a fantastic show. John Jorgenson is one of the greatest guitarists around as well as clarinetist. While a lot of the music is original it clearly is influenced by Django Reinhart. The young and talented vionlist was amozing and sounded so much like Stephane Grappelli. The Curtis Theatre was a good venue for the show as it is a small intimate theatre making it easy for John to connect to the audience. Would definitely see this group again and again.

Walk the streets of 1930s Paris, be transported to Greece, Latin America and back home, in one night, live at the Curtis! Grammy winner John Jorgenson and his Quintet enthrall audiences with original and classic “gypsy jazz” – the dynamic string-driven swing created by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli in 1930s Paris. Virtuosic guitar, clarinet, violin, bouzouki, bass, vocals and percussion take center stage in this upbeat, luxuriant evening of live music.
Wine Tasting Option
