The ensemble was originally formed in 2004 for the release of “Franco-American Swing”. The group’s style has been called “Gypsy Jazz” after the dynamic string-driven swing created by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli in 1930s Paris, but Jorgenson’s compositions draw in elements from Latin, Romanian, Classical, Rock and Greek music, so “21st Century World Music” is perhaps a more apt…

7:00 pm – Ronnie Foster Trio

Monday, March 6 @ 7:00 PM
