A few years ago, some Asheville area bands that specialize in the "gypsy jazz" sound of 1930's and '40's Europe threw a concert to celebrate the 100th birthday of Django Reinhardt, one of the greatest guitarists of all time. We had some of them in Studio B to play and chat beforehand, and we're excited to do it again for this Wednesday's 4th annual birthday party. Members of Hot Point Trio, One Leg Up, the John Henry's, and King Leo's New Hot Rhythm will get together, using the original Hot Club of France line-up of three guitars, a fiddle and bass. Nothing like a live "3 O'Clock Jump"!
