Gypsy Jazz!

Ever wanted to spend April in Paris? Hot Air will take you there this weekend with a gypsy jazz special, featuring Budge Schachte of Van Django. The talented guitarist shares a few of his favourite tracks of  manouche music as his swinging quartet gets ready to play the 8th Annual April in Paris Gypsy Jazz Festival at St. James Hall. From Django Reinhardt's Hot Club of France to Vancouver's own Hot Club of Mars...Budge will take you on a springtime flight of musical fancy.
