Gypsy Jazz Guitarist Stephane Wrembel and his Trio at the Mainstay
The New York Times has called Stephane Wrembel “Perhaps the most creative improviser in Gypsy jazz today.” Wrembel is one of the most highly regarded guitarists in the world specializing in the style of legendary composer/guitarist Django Reinhardt. He learned his craft among the Gypsies at campsites in the French countryside. He has had a remarkable career, touring the world, while releasing 16 albums under his name and the nom de plume, The Django Experiment. His original compositions have been featured in Woody Allen’s films Vicki Cristina Barcelona and Midnight in Paris. Since 2003, Wrembel has produced the Django a Gogo Festival, bringing together some of the finest musicians in the world to celebrate the Gypsy-jazz guitar style to perform in prestigious venues such as Carnegie Hall and The Town Hall. His program, Django New Orleans, recently sold out 8 shows at Dizzy’s Club at Jazz at Lincoln Center. He is scheduled to perform his new program, Shades of Django, at Lincoln Center in the fall of 2022.
