Live on Télé-Barbès STEPHANE WREMBEL TRIO We've had the privilege of hosting Stéphane every Sunday (when he’s in town) for over 15 years. In the meantime, Wrembel has probably become the foremost interpreter of Django Reinhardt’s music in North America. Whether sticking to the French master’s arrangements, or taking the music into new territory, Wrembel has always treated Django like a classic composer rather the cliché paragon of swing and speed he has often been portrayed as. For the past couple of years, Stéphane has been busy with multiple projects. in addition to his work as a film composer and performer, Wrembel has been releasing albums under the moniker Django Experiment, with various re-readings of Django's music. He has collaborated with a wide range of musicians, including pianist Jean-Michel Pilc (album coming out soon) Stochelo Rosenberg, Al Di Meola, and Sam Bush. He has performed at Carnegie Hall, Town Hall and France's National Opera in Lyon with his Django a Go Go series, and has also released "Django l'Impressionniste", a recording of Django’s “Improvisations” - the solo pieces that Django recorded throughout his life and were in fact precisely scripted and more akin to classical preludes than jazz improv. Tonight, he will performed with two menbers of his core group - bassist Ari Folman-Cohen and guitarist Thor Jensen.
