Hitchin, United Kingdom, May 13, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- World-renowned bassist Viktor Obsust together with his two colleages, accordionist Maurizio Minardi and guitarist Andrea Quintarelli, return to Benslow Music on Tuesday 22 May for an evening of moody and virtuosic jazz inspired by the gypsy tradition of Django Reinhardt and injected with exuberant individuality.
Said Stephen Pettitt, Benslow Music’s Director of Music: “We’re honoured to welcome back this truly astounding group of musicians for a second round of gypsy-inspired jazz following their highly successful evening here last year. Their virtuosity will dazzle as much as their ability to summon contemplative atmospheres will seduce. And the sheer originality of their take on the gypsy jazz traditions first cultivated by the great Django Reinhardt in post-war Paris is something very special indeed. An event truly not to be missed.”
