AN AFTERNOON WITH JOHN JORGENSON at WICA, Jan. 9
John Jorgenson is known as one of the pioneers of the American gypsy jazz movement. He has performed as a solo artist as well as collaborated with other musicians all over the world. His articles and lessons on Gypsy Jazz have appeared in prominent guitar magazines and he has given master classes around the country, and he has performed with some of the most respected European proponents of this style, Bireli Lagrene and Romane. His playing has been included on a CD with Babik Reinhardt and Jimmy Rosenberg, and on another featuring Angelo Debarre and Moreno . In 1988, Curb Records released Jorgenson’s After You’ve Gone CD, a collection of Reinhardt and Goodman-styled 30′s swing, featuring guest artists Darol Anger and David Grisman.
