Swingology's third CD ups the ante, with dynamite vocals and swingin' clarinet added to the expanded string section of three gypsy guitars, violin and bass. Our music is totally inspired by the great gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt. Django is not just one of many influences, he is the one!
Swingology takes you back to Paris of the 1930s, a time when swing was king, when the world danced to the swing rhythms of Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, and Tommy Dorsey … and in France the unlikely combination of gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt and violinist Stephane Grappelli created the Quintet of the Hot Club of France, infusing the swing music of the era with the sounds of the gypsy camps and the rowdy Parisian dance halls to create a unique style unmatched for its driving rhythm, inventiveness and excitement, a style now known as "gypsy jazz" or "gypsy gwing."
Swingology is dedicated to bringing the Hot Club style of music to new fans everywhere. Our songs range from classics of the swing era to popular tunes and movie/TV themes of today, all done in the irresistible gypsy swing style.
