Django a la Creole is two guitars and double bass weaving sultry rhythms around the soaring clarinet of arguably the current number one on the instrument, Evan Christopher. The magic comes from the fusion of Gypsy swing with hot rhythms from the streets of New Orleans, the Caribbean and Brazil. Elegant and impassioned, New Orleans-based clarinettist Evan Christopher's style is steeped in the tradition exemplified by early jazz masters such as Sidney Bechet, Jimmie Noone, and Barney Bigard. Together with UK-based guitarists David Blenkhorn and Dave Kelbie, and bassist Sebastien Girardot, the quartet celebrates the music of the legendary Django Reinhardt and enlivens swing-era classics with fresh interpretations and virtuosic improvisations. Following the success of their debut in 2007 at the Haugesund International Jazz Festival, they released their first CD, Django a la Creole, to much worldwide acclaim.
