Minor Swing, live in the NCPR studio

Minor Swing joined Todd Moe in the NCPR studio to give listeners a taste of what they call gypsy jazz, or gypsy swing. The style was pioneered by French Gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt, who blended American jazz of the '30s and '40s with European Gypsy styles of music.

In this performance they play three pieces: F A Swing (FA for Franco-American), Nuages, a Django Reinhardt standard, and For Sephora, a bossa nova-style composition.  Go to full article
