FiddleBop: "Gypsy jazz: re-imagined"!FiddleBop return to HowTheLightGetsIn Festival with "Gypsy jazz: re-imagined"! On violin, Spanish guitar, keyboard, and fretless bass.And we sing too, with four voices in harmony. Wales-based FiddleBop's jazz is sophisticated but not pretentious or stuffy. Is danceable but not rhythmically boring. Has plenty of exciting improvised solos but is still tuneful and melodic. And — like the first Gypsy jazz bands — FiddleBop's "Gypsy jazz: re-imagined" is highly eclectic. Just as in the 1930s, the Quintette du Hot Club de France created amazing music based on current and past pop tunes, traditional Gypsy melodies, their own compositions, even some J S Bach... so FiddleBop's repertoire is similarly wide-ranging. We play Gypsy-flavoured jazz drawn from all of the genre's century-long history. That's get-up-and-dance jazz from the 1920s, 1930s chilli-hot swing, and cool post-bop. Plus jazz-flavoured classic pop, folk-jazz, and our own creations. All played and sung with Gypsy zing and passion! See you there?
