Some call it Gypsy Jazz, some Hot Swing, in either case it is acoustic jazz in the spirit of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli. Swing Noire invokes the energy of a swingin’ jazz club, transporting audiences back to the early days of jazz with their unique take on Hot Swing. Vermont’s hottest acoustic, Hot Club style quartet, Swing Noire makes music that “will entrance and surprise you.” If you haven’t heard this music (especially live) you are in for a treat. Great energy, soul, sophistication, and improvisation are the hallmarks of a Swing Noire performance. Violinist David Gusakov, guitarist Jim Stout and twin brothers Rob and Jim McCuen on guitar and double bass make up Vermont’s tightest acoustic, Hot Swing ensemble.
