Gypsy Swing, Vol. 2

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Adam Greenberg
A quick follow-up to the relatively successful Gypsy Swing, this sophomore album on ARC from Ismael Reinhardt, current heir to the name of jazz guitar's greatest figure, is a mix of standards and originals in the style of Django primarily.
