The Major Swing Project is proud to finally bring their favourite jazz and folk melodies to the renowned Ellington Jazz Club on March 10th 2021. Prepare yourself for a journey around the world with familiar tunes and original sounds that are heavily inspired by the Hot Club of France from the 1930s, timeless chanson by the late and great Edith Piaf and modern songs with a Gypsy twist.
The Major Swing Project explores a modern variant of the 1930’s Manouche inspired gypsy sound, with the music being heavily influenced by Django Reinhardt and the Hot Club of France. Weaving their own independent sound around folk influences and tinkering into a swing flavour with their very own original repertoire. Essentially the music becomes a sculpture . . .
