Jazz Manouche, Swing

The Music of Django Reinhardt Past, Preset, and Future.

Ryan Picone Quartet is back for their encore performance to showcase the music of Django Reinhardt in a way that shows the relationship of how Django’s music developed from the 1930’s to the style that is now prevalent all around the world known as, Jazz Manouche. Author Michael Dregni who wrote one of the most recognized biographies of Django’s life had this to say about Ryan Picone Quartet’s most recent album.

“Swinging, sensual, moody, rousing — Ryan Picone Quartet’s music follows the trail of Django Reinhardt’s Gypsy jazz. Listening to these tracks, you can almost smell the campfire smoke and see the nighttime lights of Paris burning on the horizon. Bon voyage!”

Come join Ryan Picone Quartet for a night that takes you for a journey that showcases the life and legacy of Django Reinhardt.
