About Gypsy Jazz Jam: The sound of Jazz Manouche, or Gypsy Jazz, has been whispering its way out of smoky bars and bistro corners since French guitarist Django Reinhardt first laid its foundations in the 1940s. Almost 80 years later, torchbearers of this captivating music play on, supplementing the classic sound with the jazz idioms of today. Guitarists Frank Vignola, Vinny Raniolo and Andreas Oberg have risen to the top in the most recent generation of Gypsy Jazz greats, playing Reinhardt's originals, the American Songbook and stunning compositions of their own creation. Jaw-dropping technique and a wildly diverse repertoire make this performance a highlight of the winter season.

After finishing a series of world tours with Pat Martino, Monaco brings his own fiery, explosive flavor of jazz to the table, backed by Fareed Haque on guitar and Greg Fundis on drums.
