As a celebration of the hundredth anniversary of Manouche guitar genius Django Reinhardt, The Rosenberg Trio invite their friend and guitarist extraordinaire Bireli Lagrene, premiering studio time for an unparrallelled Manouche Dream-Team".
The Rosenberg Trio steps into digital distribution, and seizes the opportunity to go BIG : Independently produced 18-track album with Free bonus 50-minute video documentary , and last but not least, TOTALLY FREE 6-track mini-album ! (Everything in Hi-Q, 320Kbps MP3.)
The digital revolution allows the band to adress its audience more directly than ever and to offer more, with a typically Gipsy focus on independence and generosity. Forget about distribution problems in remote places and about insane prices on imported records : everything will be available to everyone, everywhere, 24/7 !
On the band's website, the Full 18-track Album + its bonus video documentary will cost only 8 euros. The 6-track mini album, rightfully entitled Free as the wind", will be... Absolutely free!
A large part devoted to lesser known compositions by Django, a daring excursion into the fields of amplified gipsy guitar with an amazing vintage amp, modern digressions, everything in the album breathes Django ! Welcomed by the Trio as the exceptional guest that he is, Birli is at home right away, and it's with playful and fraternal guitar work that they evoke the spirit of the great Django. The fierce and exuberant lead guitarists' duos are matched only by the trio's perfect balance and equilibrium after the passage of the storm named Birli. In the simplest and truest tribute to django, our three Flying Dutchmen are the absolute masters (according to Birli !) with two guitars and a double-bass. Add a vintage-sounding tube amp to drift a bit into Reinhardt's late electric period, and voila !".
The Documentary shot during the week in studio, is an insight to the making of this recording and the work mode of these amazing yet so accessible and modest musicians, while revealing rehearsals, alternates, tryouts and daily life, in an intimate way that places us at the very heart of their way of paying tribute to Django, which is ultimately no other than their way of life.
