Hailed as "the best Jazz show in town" by the Wall Street Journal, the French jazz group DORADO SCHMIDT & THE DJANGO REINHARDT ALL STARS carry on the tradition of Gypsy Jazz and the famous “Quintet of the Hot Club of France” that featured Jango Reinhardt and Stephan Grapelli. You’ll recognize many favorites that were trademarks of the group.
