Quadra Cultural Committee
Sunday, March 6th at 7:00 pm, the Denis Chang Manouche Quartet appearing at the Quadra Community Centre, will get you beboppin’ to the gypsy jazz sounds of Django Reinhardt-style guitar with a modern twist. Chang, known as the Godfather of the Montréal jazz scene, has a modern take on the Manouche guitar (a chromatic Gypsy flavour coupled with the “swing” of the 30’s and 40’s) inspired by composers in Jazz, Classical and Contemporary. The result is a happy, music that promises to be “...just about the finest display of swingin’ gypsy Jazz you’ll ever have the chance to hear.” (Critic Dan Bolles, Seven Days.) Advance tickets are $17 at Quadra Crafts, Hummingbird and the Music Plant. $20 at the door. Students 16 and under admitted free with an adult.
