Hot Club Gypsy Swing: Tim Kliphuis plays Grappelli, Mozes Rosenberg plays Django

A gypsy jazz double bill packed with the charm and musical fireworks that made the Hot Club of Paris and its two celebrated leading musicians such a magnet for jazz lovers in the Left Bank of the 1930s and 40s. From the legendary Rosenberg family, scintillating guitarist Mozes combines astonishing dexterity and speed with pure soul in a way that places him among the worthiest current day successors to the legacy of the great Django Reinhardt.

Classically trained and widely regarded as Stéphane Grappelli's heir, the Dutch violinist, Tim Kliphuis is one of Europe’s foremost gypsy swing jazz fiddlers. Joined by his classic trio with Nigel Clark (guitar) and Roy Percy (bass), he recreates the wonderful sound and easygoing fun that the maestro brought to jazz. “Playfully inventive and technically brilliant“ (The Scotsman).
