Rhythm Future Quartet

Gypsy Jazz de Django

Saturday, March 25, 2017

7:30 pm // Discovery Theatre

Rhythm Future Quartet is on a mission: to keep the spirit of Gypsy jazz alive and growing in the new millennium. Imagine the sound of fast-paced strings spilling out the window of a Parisian bistro. Though influenced by masters Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli, who pioneered the genre in the 1930s and 40s, the foursome offers up a dynamic, contemporary take on the sound. Rhythm Future Quartet’s performances are a blend of Gypsy jazz standards, original compositions, and a bit of the unexpected (a quirky cover of The Beatles’ “Come Together” is on their latest album). Their musical virtuosity has been heralded widely by critics. This tour is in support of their new album “Travels” and Anchorage is fortunate to be on the itinerary.

Tickets start at $40.25.
