SZABQUARTET is primarily inspired by the legacy of the great gypsy swing guitarist Django Reinhardt. Django Reinhardt is considered to be one of the best jazz players and composers of all time. He created a unique virtuoso style of jazz – manouche, also known as “gypsy swing.” Rhythms frequently used in jazz manouche include swing, bossa-nova, samba, latin, valse musette, groove, and chanson. The program consists of Django Reinhardt’s music and original compositions by the band members. SZABQUARTET is not afraid to include global pop hits or classical music adapted to swing in its repertoire. Renowned artists associated with gypsy swing are Stephane Grappelli, Edith Piaf, Stochelo Rosenberg, Tchavolo Schmitt, Gus Viseur or the French singer ZAZ. SZABQUARTET lineup includes Vojtech Szabó on the accordion, Petr Kovařík on the guitar, Tomáš Vunderle Koudelka on the electro-acoustic bass and Josef Bagár on the drums.
