European Gypsy swing meets the music and rhythms of "le monde Creole" in this seductive and captivating project led by New Orleans-based clarinetist Evan Christopher. Renowned for his contemporary framing of early jazz masters such as Sidney Bechet, Jimmie Noone, and Barney Bigard, his quartet enlivens the music of the legendary Django Reinhardt as well as swing-era classics with the buoyant rhythms of New Orleans, Cuba, the Caribbean even Brazil. Dazzling improvisations and colourful stories of the jazz greats he most admires are also hallmarks of Django a la Creole's presentations. Guitarists Don Vappie and Dave Kelbie, and bassist Sebastien Girardot provide solid backing in an uncommonly elegant acoustic aesthetic.
This year celebrating the release of the third album ‘Live’. Their first CD, Django à la Créole was released to much worldwide acclaim and retains a cult status in European jazz. The second, ‘Finesse’ was the 2010 Sunday Times jazz album of the year!
