Music Around Town, Seasonal Special Happenings

Robin Nolan Trio

When: Tue., Feb. 11, 7 p.m. 2014

Carrying the musical legacy of gypsy jazz to the modern era, Robin Nolan performs with carefree looseness backed by astonishing precision. In the vein of the gypsy jazz great, Django Reinhardt, Nolan's exotic harmonies blend with classic swing seamlessly. On his latest record, Gypsy Blue, these genres weave in and out of each other, sometimes even with a little bit of folksy twang. The title track makes use of catchy syncopation as Nolan skillfully solos on top. While the legacy of Django is a tough act for any guitarist to follow, Nolan's formative years studying the master's works led to some wonderful interpretations of his pieces. Tonight, he performs his exotic swing with his trio that includes a second guitarist and upright bassist. (Patrick Stoops)
