Martin Taylor & Biréli Lagrène
Sunday, Sept 3rd at 7pm

Widely considered to be the world’s foremost exponent of solo jazz and fingerstyle guitar playing, Martin Taylor possesses an inimitable style that has earned him global acclaim from fellow musicians, fans and critics alike. He dazzles audiences with a signature style that artfully combines his virtuosity, emotion and humor with a strong, engaging stage presence.

Among guitarists who can claim the legacy of Django Reinhardt, Bireli Lagrene is obvious: of course, he understood and perpetuated the timbre particular, guitaristic slashes, swing furnace that characterized the poetry of his illustrious elder. But in Bireli, there is a way to overcome the pure virtuosity to achieve a higher order of quality: to the point that his game can make us doubt that Django had really existed before him. Only European jazz genius fully recognized in the United States, Bireli Lagrene chose to greet his master by sharing this music full of sap traveling. Bireli, Django: two names, a vision of the guitar to celebrate in an imaginary head-to-head, past the ropes “French” has never been so much future. (François Lacharme)
