Musician

Tom C. Smith

Born:

A bass player since 1975, Tom's tendency to overplay was due to his 60s rock influences and angered many, many guitar players. Fast forward 40 years and we find Tom indulging in the gypsy jazz world playing bass to the music of long-time favorite Django Reinhardt. Tom also loves jam band and freestyle improv music and will play normal music as well...sometimes.

Musician

Gypsy Vendetta

Active since:

Copenhagen-based Gypsy Vendetta is an experience of extraordinary energy and creativity. Having existed for almost a decade, the band has established itself as a leading ensemble in the Gypsy- jazz style on the Danish music scene. After hundreds of concerts and a well-received debut album, Gypsy Vendetta has developed their own very personal sound, while preserving the essence of the Jazz Manouche tradition. The album “Odd Club Copenhagen”, featuring violinist Alfkil Wennermark, consists of original compositions, seeking to challenge the genre and explore new directions for the development of the modern Gypsy Jazz sound. Gypsy Vendetta has toured in a variety of constellations and collaborations – such as the popular Danish troubadour Bo Evers, creating a unique sound-universe with a blend of singer/songwriter- folk and swinging Gypsy Jazz

Django

Featuring the music of Chet Baker
Duration: 10:02

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 | Part 5 | Part 6 | Part 7

My father, Anthony Ricci (Jan. 17, 1930 - Oct. 2, 2018), was a jazz aficionado. Between his extensive record collection and taking me to concerts, he introduced me to jazz at a young age and helped shape my taste in music. I doubt there would be an All About Jazz without him. In celebration of Dad, we present seven tunes from seven albums spanning seven days that he played at times throughout the years.

Enjoy!

Frank Portolese: Plectrum Jazz Guitar Solos

Read "Plectrum Jazz Guitar Solos" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey


Solo jazz guitar is a harsh and unforgiving lover. The piano provides a more complete performance experience as a solo instrument for technical reasons, though this same completeness can be achieved on guitar by a precious few, talented enough to achieve such artistic parity. Add to this the stipulation that a plectrum (guitar pick) be used ...

Read "Chris Jentsch: Cycles and Reflecting on the Journey" reviewed by Ludwig vanTrikt


John Coltrane once said, “Let the music speak for itself." The guitarist/composer and band leader Christopher Jentsch adds an interesting twist on that subject by opting to describe himself when asked about the broader subject of how to capture his music in his own words. “I think of myself as a composer/guitarist working with contemporary improvisational ...
