WHAT'S ON / The Scottish National Jazz Orchestra with special guest Martin Taylor

In the Spirit of Django

The Scottish National Jazz Orchestra is delighted to welcome renowned jazz guitarist Martin Taylor to perform the music of Django Reinhardt, one of the most perennially popular figures in jazz.

There is no guitarist on the world stage today more capable of evoking the spirit of Django’s ageless music than Martin Taylor. He connects the golden age of Parisian Swing to the present day through a discography full of authentic gypsy jazz; acclaimed recordings with his Spirit of Django ensembles; and his extraordinary partnership with Reinhardt’s closest musical collaborator, Stéphane Grappelli.

Reinhardt became world-famous for his delightfully idiosyncratic jazz music, his unique style and his sheer artistry. Long after his passing, Django remains a hero to guitarists everywhere, and his wonderfully evergreen music never fails to reach into our hearts and lift our spirits.

Django Reinhardt’s Hot Club of France Quintet is warmly regarded in the history of jazz as definitive icons of sizzling pre- and post-war gypsy jazz. The SNJO and Martin Taylor are sure to raise the temperature several degrees with liberated interpretations of free-spirited music that speaks equally to the young and the young-at-heart.
