Aaron Weinstein and Matt Munisteri's Tribute to Stéphane Grappelli and Django Reinhardt

When: Sat., Jan. 17, 7:30 & 10:30 p.m. 2015

Violinist Aaron Weinstein and guitarist Matt Munisteri qualify as virtuosos on their respective instruments — much like, oh, say, Stéphane Grappelli and Django Reinhardt. These guys have been teaming up to perform tributes to the aforementioned greats. It’s a night of strings and excellence, showcasing the terrific combination of violin and guitar. Munisteri has proven himself something of a Renaissance Man guitarist, weaving Americana threads into his jazz albums. Weinstein similarly touches on a number of different subgenres in writing and recording. Hey, Tony Bennett once called him “the Groucho of the violin,” and that sounds pretty darned cool. Weinstein himself, meantime, takes up the moniker “bow-tie activist,” so there’s that too. There are two shows tonight, so there are even fewer excuses not to get out and hear some great jazz.
