Djangonauts have taken the Northern Jazz circuit by storm having seen sell out crowds at many of their gigs. Their contemporary take on the Gypsy Jazz style, original arrangements and virtuoso technique have delighted audiences throughout the North of England. 2010, Django’s centenary year was a phenomenal year for Djangonauts, their biggest gig to date was at Glastonbury 2010 where they wowed the audience at the Bourbon Street Jazz and Blues venue. They also headlined the opening night of the International Guitar Festival of Great Britain in November 2010. Their debut album ‘Afternoon in Paris’ has received great reviews and is available now.
Djangonauts are Chris Walker (Guitar), Henrik Linneman (Flute), Phil Johnson (Rhythm Guitar), Kevin Walker (Double Bass).
Djangonauts are a hard swinging acoustic jazz quartet playing in the Gypsy Jazz style. Taking their lead from contemporary gypsy jazz masters such as Birelli Lagrene and Angelo Debarre the band has a fresh modern sound but is firmly rooted in the style of the legendary Manouche Guitar Virtuoso Django Reinhardt.
Their repertoire features many original arrangements of tunes by Django Reinhardt (Nuages, Swing 42, Douce Ambience) and jazz standards from the era (Honeysuckle Rose, Exactly Like You, Limehouse Blues) alongside contemporary jazz pieces from composers including Chick Corea (La Fiesta) and the Modern Jazz Quartet (Afternoon in Paris).
