Jazz guitar virtuoso Doug Munro has an insatiable appetite for all things jazz. On his latest CD, “A Very Gypsy Christmas” Doug demonstrates his long standing love affair with the music of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Greppelli with 15 of the swingingest Gypsy Jazz versions of Christmas favorites you’ve ever heard. These are not the same old tired versions of traditional Christmas songs but brand new, reworked arrangements. Each track is a musical event unto itself. The CD features special guests swing clarinet king Ken Peplowski, rising vocal star Cyrille-Aimee Daudel, and violinist Howie Bujese.
