"These are some of the greatest musicians in the world"...Leonardo DiCaprio

Special Guests: MELODY GARDOT & KEN PEPLOWSKI And Introducing Veronica Swift

It's a celebration at the great hall as The Django Festival Allstars take center stage. They've been criss-crossing the US to sold-out crowds, standing ovations, and critical acclaim. At the Playboy Jazz Festival/Hollywood Bowl, Critic Scott Yanow wrote: "The highpoint of the entire festival was The Django Festival Allstars."

On May 1st, DORADO SCHMITT will perform alongside his two sons, SAMSON and AMATI (guitar soloists) ‘passing the family torch' to them as his dad did to him, carrying on the legacy of Gypsy Jazz. Performing alongside are top Allstar soloists LUDOVIC BEIER (accordion & accordina) and PIERRE BLANCHARD (violin). DOUDOU CUILLERIER'S scat singing and rhythm guitar bring the house down along with gypsy cousin FRANCKO MEHRSTEIN on rhythm and ANTONIO LICUSATI and GINO ROMAN on bass.

... "the best jazz show in town! Imagine a stage filled with six contemporary Reinhardt descendants, and you'll get a sense that the collective talent pool on the bandstand is larger than the Arc de Triomphe!"...Wall Street Journal

The traditions flourish today with music as the heart and soul of family life, being passed down from one generation to another, as will happen on May 1st at Carnegie Hall.

The music is enrapturing...a feeling of freedom and abandon, the soul of Manouche gypsy life brought to life at Carnegie Hall upon the upcoming release of their new CD, Attitude Manouche, on Resilience Music Alliance.

Much of the music to be performed onstage highlights original compositions, keeping the spirit of Django fresh and beyond.

The Django Festival Allstars are the top players that have emerged from the Birdland Django Festival held twice a year, founded and co-produced by Pat Philips & Ettore Stratta. The May 1 concert is dedicated to Maestro Stratta whose great musical talent and leadership set them upon this path.

MELODY GARDOT, Grammy-winning vocalist, is a master of the art of capturing mood and emotion reminiscent of greats like Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, and Nina Simone. Melody will be performing Django Rhinehardt's most important composition, "Nuages," with the legendary Dorado Schmitt on guitar.

KEN PEPLOWSKI is arguably one of the greatest living jazz clarinetists who has collaborated with greats Mel Torme, Madonna, Bill Charlap, James Moody , Charlie Byrd, Peggy Lee, Erich Kunzel. He tours the world at major festivals and clubs.

SPONSORS: BIRDLAND, DOWNTOWN MUSIC, DOUGLAS REETZ , JOHN & JOAN D'ADDARIO FOUNDATION, JOHN PERSE STRINGS, THE KALICH ORGANIZATION
