Minor Swing Quintet Short Info

The inspiration for these five musicians from Bologna (Italy) comes from one of the most famous songs by Django Reinhardt, Minor Swing.

Driven by love for gipsy jazz, but wishing to create their own hybrid sound, they decided to resume the traditional manouche songs and try to contextualize them in their Bologna of the 2000s.

The band's heterogeneity, which blends different musical paths (from rock to soul, from world music to classical music), is the keystone for the modernization process of the genre.

The result is in fact an explosive mixture based on respect for the great soloists of the past, with the addition of fresh and courageous ideas and arrangements.

You will listen to the standards of jazz tradition and manouche, but also original compositions, where you can sense the desire to actualize the musical proposal and to merge all the knowledge in play to shape a new musical idea.

That you want to sit and listen,
or that you feel like dancing all the concert ...

Enjoy Minor Swing Quintet!
