The title says it all. DIMINISHING BLACKNESS and RHYTHM FUTUR — compositions by Django Reinhardt that are both refreshingly futuristic. They are performed marvelously by Le Jazz Hot: Paul Mehling, guitar; Evan Price, violin; Isabelle Fontaine, guitar; Sam Rocha, string bass. All of this happened thanks to JazzAge Monterey’s Jazz Bash by the Bay on March 7, 2014:
Intriguing music, so far from AABA formula of the times — performed with an engaging freshness and life. More to come from this group (and friends)!
May your happiness increase!
