"When French musician Stephane Wrembel picks up a guitar and jams out one of his dizzying gypsy jazz tunes his left hand dances over the neck of the instrument and his right hand strums furiously over the strings. The notes are clear, but the hands are a blur. He's that fast.
Now he's twisting tradition by pulling in African, Cuban and rock rhythms to create a sound he calls 'gypsy jam'. - Lauren Johnston, amNewYork -
