“Gypsy jazz at its finest…” – International Review of Music
Guitarist/violinist Dorado Schmitt is the finest contemporary purveyor of Django Reinhardt’s gypsy-jazz tradition. Schmitt acquired his musical skills while growing up amongst the Roma culture of France. Aside from a detour into rock music during his teen years, Schmitt has been a loyal acolyte of the Reinhardt musical legacy, characterized by the hard-charging swing rhythms of classic jazz, matched with streamlined melodies and sophisticated harmonies. Their latest album, 2012’s Live at Birdland, exemplifies how gypsy jazz has grown fresh in present times and displays Schmitt’s total mastery of the style.
