ICYMI Episode 03 – Andrew Brown’s Djangophonique

ICYMI Ep-03 - Djangophonique - BannerEnjoy this REPLAY of Djangophonique’s 2020 Wheatland Worldwide Online Festival performance.

Djangophonique is a musical project born out of reverence for the Parisian Jazz Manouche style that was made popular by the legendary Sinti guitarist Django Reinhardt and his Quintette du Hot Club de France. While remaining steeped in the rich and virtuosic tradition, the group brings this music into the present with stunning improv, spontaneity and musical interaction. Hot swing, lush ballads, musette waltzes, jazz standards, boleros, and moody minor pieces are all fused together with theatrical flair and musical humor.

Andrew Brown is the son of a Motown session musician and grew up listening to the sounds of his dad’s piano as he steeped in musical influences from Duke Ellington to Stevie Wonder. As a young man returning from a trip to New Orleans with a new found interest in Swing music, he co-founded the eclectic Americana group Appleseed Collective, with whom he has toured 150+ dates a year.

Djangophonique will be performing at the 2021 Wheatland Music Festival
