NEW ALBUM RELEASE – SIX & SIX | Swing to Bop
November 9th 2018 we released our sixth album on the Norwegian Gypsy Jazz label Hot Club Records – the label for Gypsy Jazz. As the album title refers to, we have picked SIX lesser-known swing compositions from our hero Django and matched them with SIX bebop standards that Django loved to play! We had a great album release concert at the venue Bartof Station and you can find photos and videos on our social media.
And thanks to the Danish magazine Jazz Special for saying in their review: “One of Europe’s leading bands in this genre….” read the review here. Also thanks to JazzNyt for another great review of Six & Six
Watch our short video teaser on live concerts and presentation of the band – and remember to follow us at the social media.
Rêve Bohème – Denmarks finest exponent of modern Gypsy Jazz
The inspiration from the guitarplayer Django Reinhardt is the key to Rêve Bohème’s music and characteristic acoustic sound. The band have through the years updated the European String Swing with a modern repertoire of gypsy jazz standards, their own compositions and songs from the American jazz singer tradition. Reve Bohème has released 6 albums since 2002 and their 6th album from winter 2018 consists of some of Django’s more rare compositions and several bebop-standards.
The line-up consists of:
Jens Fuglsang (vocal & leadguitar)
Finn Poulsen (harmonica & vocal)
Robert Pilgaard (rhythmguitar)
Jesper Riis (bass)
