"440" Gypsy Jazz
440 celebrates the gypsy jazz tradition of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli with original compositions and arrangements by the band. Their toe-tapping, hot jazz, swinging style is brilliant.

She has toured with Hypnotic Clambake, jammed with world renowned gypsy jazz musicians: Tcha Limberger & the members of Les Violins de Bruxelles, and Chris & Julian Brunard.

Out in the wider world, he has performed with Jazz Manouche luminaries like Joscho Stephan, Tim Kliphius, Gonzalo Bergara, Ben Powell, Aurélien Bouly, and Titi Bamberger.
