Description
A vagabond music, gypsy jazz is played today in French gypsy bars, Romany encampments, on religious pilgrimages—and increasingly on the world's concert stages. The biographer of Django Reinhardt and a columnist and feature writer for Vintage Guitar magazine, Michael Dregni follows the music through caravans on the edge of Paris (where today's young French gypsies learn gypsy Jazz as a rite of passage), along the gypsy pilgrimage route to Les Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer (where the Romany play around their campfires), and finally to the performances of such stage musicians as Bireli Lagrene, Boulou Ferre, Dorado Schmitt, and Django's grandchildren David Reinhardt and Dallas Baumgartner.

"The enduring overlap of gypsy music and jazz leads to a picaresque journey from the U.S., across modern Europe and back again. The music itself is the wandering hero as Dregni gracefully weaves together historical research, personal insights, and conversations with colorful, music-making characters. Generous, musical storytelling at its best."—Ashley Kahn
