Django Reinhardt left behind an indelible musical legacy, introducing and defining a passionate style of Gypsy Jazz guitar that was astonishing in the 1930's and is still revered and emulated today. Born to a Gypsy family in Belgium, Django's playing inspired his extended family in Germany and France, and successive generations of Reinhardts have reinforced his powerful musical vision and added their own ideas. The lure of Gypsy Jazz has spread throughout the world with adherents from the United States to Japan, but the living Gypsy culture and the emotional wellspring that gives Gypsy Jazz its unique appeal remains rooted in Europe.

In The Footsteps Of Django brings together the best of the new Gypsy Jazz masters of EuropeóLULO REINHARDT, a third generation German master, whose group the Latin Swing Project combines Gypsy Jazz with Latin rhythms. Lulo Reinhardt is the foremost authentic and distinctive musical voice in Gypsy music today. Critics and fans agree that it is not solely because Lulo is the great-nephew of world-famous musician extraordinaire Django Reinhardt: It's about Lulo's unique musical genius, and his ability to make it appear so utterly effortless. Lulo's Latin-Swing project features violinist Daniel Weitlinger (Australia), bassist Harald Becher (Germany), drummer Uli Kramer (Germany) and keyboardist Sean Mackenzie (Australia).

The performance opens with the gifted SEBASTIEN GINIAUX on guitar. Says Mission Mission, "Sebastian Gineaux is one of the greatest young guitarists in this style in Paris, and therefore probably one of the best in the world. I'd be hard pressed to think of any world-class guitarist of any style that wouldn't be blown away by his virtuosic technique and endless improvisational ideas."
