Founded by Charlie Castelluzzo Italophile and eccentric Django Reinhardt fanatic, Jazzingaro is a traditional Gypsy Jazz band influenced by the early Quintette Du Hot Club de France. The group is joined by some of the most talented string swing musicians in New York City. Influences include Oscar Aleman, Matelo & Baro Ferret, Eddie Lang, Tchan Tchou Vidal, Nino Rota and more. Django Reinhardt's infamous shuffle Rhythm will be heard often, a commonly underused technique in modern Gypsy Jazz that he used during accompaniment, creating an exciting locomotive effect.
