January 10 Cinnabar Theater presents special concert with Le Jazz Hot
December 17, 2015 – Cinnabar Theater invites audiences to a concert of Le Jazz Hot, a quartet that performs flamboyant gypsy jazz inspired by the guitar genius Django Reinhardt. Django Reinhardt is rightly hailed as one of the greatest guitar players that ever lived. His accomplishments as a guitarist are rooted in Gypsy culture and musically fertile Paris of the 1920’s.
This fabulous band, Le Jazz Hot, features Paul Mehling on lead guitar and vocals, Evan Price on violin, Isabelle Fontaine on rhythm guitar and vocals, and Sam Rocha on bass and vocals. They play sensuous gypsy jazz with dazzling brilliance.
Paul founded the band in the early 1990’s and since then the group has released nine albums, teaming up with folks like David Grisman and Dan Hicks. They deliver scintillating versions of classics by Django Reinhardt, Stephane Grapelli and Cole Porter as well as originals. The band is equally at home playing tangos, waltzes or tender ballads, and swings with an ease that keeps the focus on the timeless beauty of the music.
Le Jazz Hot is one of Cinnabar’s ongoing Sunday Concert Series. Following them, Patrick Bell presents Celtic Harp and Story shortly before St. Patrick’s Day
(March 13, 2016), Belly up to the CinnaBar with the Ricardi’s on April 10, 2016. Then Amanacer Flamenco returns to sing, strum, and stomp across Cinnabar’s stage (May 15, 2016), and the concert season finale brings the virtuoso cross-over cellist Rebecca Roudman and band with the Dirty Cello concert ona wild tour of donw home blues and much more (June 12, 2016).
