A gypsy jazz trio I am a part of named Django’s Tiger recently gave a live performance and an interview on ABC Hobart’s evening show, hosted by Helen Shield,
We played two tunes. The first was an original composition named ‘Gadje,’ and we followed this up with Isham Jones’ ‘I’ll see you in my dreams,’ a swing classic, and Django Reinhardt favourite.
Gadje is a Romani word meaning ‘non-gypsy,’ which is definitely what we are. Whilst not having gypsy heritage, however, we still play this music with a strong sentimentality and sense of enjoyment. Gypsy jazz is such fun, accessible, swinging music…
The Advocate Newspaper also did a short piece on the group (18/03/14) in anticipation of our North-West Tasmania gigs in May. There will be a feature article in the paper closer to the dates (16th – 18th May).
Hope to see you at a gig soon,
