THE GONZALO BERGARA QUARTET
The all acoustic Gonzalo Bergara Quartet plays a modern variant of 1930's Django Reinhardt-inspired Gypsy Jazz. Composer and lead guitarist Bergara mixes cascades of arpeggios with the sounds of Paris and his native Argentina and is supported by an ace clarinetist and a honed rhythm section. Bergara is fiery and focused, while the hard-swinging band takes the audience for a ride.
The Quartet was named Best Jazz Group In Los Angeles by Los Angeles Magazine, picked Django Reinhardt Performer Of The Year, and was an Editor's Pick in Guitar Player Magazine and are veterans of the jazz and pop world who have worked with artists as diverse as John Jorgenson, Strunz and Farah, Terry Gibbs, Joe Williams and Clark Terry to Moby and Barry Manilow.
The EP Djangophonic is a Lo-fi quality recording, imitating the way old LP's sounded like.
