Concert Details

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

“Martin Taylor is one of the most awesome solo guitar players in the history of the instrument.” – Pat Metheny

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.

“Martin’s playing is rich with elegance, he is a great artist” – Stéphane Grappelli

“Europe’s finest jazz guitarist” – JazzTimes Magazine
