Lannie Garrett’s “Under Paris Skies” with The Gypsy Swing Revue
BEAUTIFUL, JOYOUS, PASSIONATE: GYPSY JAZZ
“The dazzling lead playing and solid rhythm of the Gypsy Swing Revue will transport you to the Left Bank of Paris.” –Coordinator Augusta Heritage Center “Swing Week”
Lannie’s show, Under Paris Skies, features Gypsy jazz music inspired by Django Reinhardt’s Hot Club of France of the 1930s. It combines American standards with an exotic Gypsy sound to create joyous, passionate music. Acoustic Swing. Joyous, uplifting, nostalgic fun!
This show is not only virtuoso quality, but visually pleasing with Lannie’s Gypsy clothes, beautiful stage backdrop and even the staff dressed in Parisian style. And as always, Lannie’s stage presence will light up the room!
The musicians of Gypsy Swing Revue and Lannie began a musical partnership in 2004. “I have always adored this kind of music, but never found musicians that could play this difficult and very specialized style. Then I met Elliot Reed (lead guitar), not only does his group play this music perfectly, we hit off a wonderful and lasting friendship. This collaboration has been no less than joyous to me,” said Lannie.
The show features a solid stand-up bass, a sure and steady rhythm guitar and of course, in the style of Django himself, the brilliant virtuoso lead guitarist, Elliot Reed.
Tunes include: “La Vie en Rose”, ”Bie Mir Bist Du Schoen”, ”I Love Paris”, “After You’ve Gone,” “Cheek to Cheek”, and many more.…the band is sassy and amazingly good. These are musician’s musicians and sure to dazzle you with their talent.
“The band is the best combo Garrett has ever fronted. Think jazzy French café music in the tradition of Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli. And, of course, Garrett camps it up a little, arriving in a stylish green chapeau with a foot-tall Eiffel Tower on top.” –Bill Husted, Denver Post Staff Columnist
