The award winning Ameranouche Trio (pronounced uh-MARE-uh-noosh) is the premier gypsy jazz trio in the United States. The name is derived from two words: American and Manouche, the gypsy tribe of guitarist Django Rienhardt. This rip-roaring ensemble is a super force of hot acoustic jazz, mixed with soul, flamenco, and bebop influences. Played on traditional French jazz guitars, the music is rhythmic, vigorous, and elegant. Whether they're playing a musette waltz from 1930 or a funk-inspired original tune, Ameranouche is the sound of gypsy jazz in the 21st century.
"More than an exceptional form of gypsy oriented jazz, Ameranouche is a capture of joyfulness itself." - Pat Martino
"Their music was so infectious it stopped us in our tracks." - Festival Preview, Newport Jazz Festival
"The NEW sound of America!" - Kevin Wheatley, National Lampoon director
