The all-acoustic ensemble Jazz Gitan (pronounced Jee-tawn) is high energy hot manouche jazz. They perform a modern variant of 1930-1940s Django Reinhardt-inspired music.

Composer and lead guitarist Don Price mixes original compositions with the Parisian jazz influence.

The music includes latin, blues, bolero, rhumba, swing, and contemporary styles combined to create a unique foot tapping and high energy experience.

The title track from the CD, “Djangit”, was featured on Hot Club Records magnificent collection of the latest Django influenced musicians from around the world, called “Django Festival 9.” Album purchases are available from CD Baby and from Djangobooks.com
