Monday Nights with WBGO: The Spirit of Django

Monday Nights with WBGO: The Spirit of Django

Jazz at Lincoln Center

With accordionist Sam Reider, guitarist Justin Poindexter, trumpeter Alphonso Horne, saxophonist Eddie Barbash, guitarist Roy Williams, bassist Dave Speranza, and drummer Arthur Vint This Django Reinhardt birthday bash is the Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola debut of Thunderswamp, a new group co-led by accordianist Sam Reider and guitarist Justin Poindexter of Silver City Bound (formerly known as the club-packing “Amigos”). Joined by a hot collective of trumpeter Alphonso Horne, violinist Alex Hargreaves, guitarist Roy Williams, bassist Dave Speranza, and drummer Arthur Vint, they will celebrate the immortal music and spirit of gypsy jazz legend, Django Reinhardt. The timeless original music remains wildly popular in and out of jazz circles, and this group will shed some new light on it, taking Django’s concepts into the 21st century with a vibe they likened to “Django Reinhardt meets Bill Frisell.”
