Blue Reed

Blue Reed pays homage to Gypsy Swing, the music pioneered by Django
Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli in the 1920’s, 30’s and 40’s.
In that band, acoustic guitar became a lead instrument for the first time
in a jazz bands.
The tunes are often fast paced and in a minor key as befits a music form
that began in small Parisian dance halls and hotel bars.
Old time songs with that 2/4 swing rhythm get a showing as well.
David Breeze and Steve Baker on guitars and Dave Hart on double bass form
the basis of this Far Northern Gypsy Swing band.
