The UK’s leading Gypsy Swing ensemble with special guest Francesca Confortini
The UK’s leading Gypsy Swing ensemble Trio Manouche will be performing inspired re-worked classics of the great Gypsy jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt together with highly atmospheric arrangements of trad swing greats such as Nat King Cole and original material written by band leader Simon Harris. During the evening, the band will also be including numbers from their forthcoming EP, “Ordinary World”.
One of the foremost exponents of Gypsy Swing Jazz, Trio Manouche bring a unique and highly contemporary twist to this ever more popular genre. For this special mid-summer show, Simon is joined by guitarist Giulio Romano and bassist Marcus Penrose together with a very special guest, the acclaimed Italian vocalist Francesca Confortini.
Trio Manouche have performed in top jazz venues in the UK and abroad, playing major festivals such as the EFG London Jazz Festival, Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party, The Mostly Jazz Festival and the Chiswick Park Festival.
“Trio Manouche are a class act. Great soulful swing delivered with wry humour…..” – Suzy Klein BBC Radio 3.
“Excellent, I was hooked after just 8 bars……. your band swings beautifully ….” – Sting.
