What is gypsy jazz? It's uplifting, fun, melodic, and emotional music. Enjoyable for general audience and kids, and also appreciative for advanced listeners. You may not know the term "gypsy jazz", but if you hear the music, I bet you will say, "Uh..., I get it. I've heard it before. I love this kind of music!"
Combining the sounds of jazz and gypsy music with a rich harmonic blend of violin and clarinet , 440 expands on the tradition of gypsy jazz established by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli. A compilation of danceable swing standards from the era of Fats Waller, Cole Porter, George Gershwin & Benny Goodman and captivating originals by the band.
This is an in-person concert at the Cape Cod Museum of Art. It will also live stream on Zoom.

Jack Soref became captivated by Django’s music after two life-changing visits to the Django Reinhardt festival in Samois-sur-Seine in 2002 and ‘03. As a teenager he managed to pick up tips and tricks from players such as Robin Nolan, Jan Brouwer, Jonny Hepbir, and Alfonso Ponticelli. Subsequently, Jack moved to Boston to continue his studies at the Berklee College of Music. For half of 2011, frère Jacques studied the music of Django Reinhardt at its source by moving to Paris, France. While there he performed with old masters (Boulou & Florin) and young bucks of the scene on the Seine. Jack has since performed in the Django style with many bands in the Boston area. He tours and records as member of Ameranouche.
