Some sweet tunes to put a pep in your step as the evenings grow longer.
"Dear gypsy jazz...it's been an amazing affair. From our first meeting in the park in Belfast via Angelo Debarre to my forming of my band it's been nothing but a pleasure. This country needs you, now more than at any time before. Please let the festival continue to bring joy to the masses and make me regret being a gadjo. Viva le manouche, and viva Django."
Neal Wright, Locoswing.
"That really is a good one: how do you explain love?
I play this music. As the young yet late Robert Cotterill said, there must be easier ways of not making a living.
I do it nevertheless. This can only be love, n'est pas? I shall keep doing it, I guess, until my teeth give in or until I have to be carried away, whichever comes first."
Jerry Senfluk, Capital Swing.
