ALEMAN, OSCAR

BROUWER, JAN

BULANYI, PAUL

CHESTER, PAUL VERNON

CURWIN, JULIAN

DARIZCUREN, FRANCIS

DATE, IAN

DE CAUTER, KOEN

DEBARRE, ANGELO

His CD "Gypsy Guitars" is probably my favourite Gypsy-guitar album...

DESAUNEY, PATRICK

DICKSON MARTINEZ

DISLEY, DIZ

FAYS, RAPHAEL

FERRE, BOULOU

FERRET, BARO

FERRET, MATELO

FERRET, SARANE

GREEN, TONY

JORGENSON, JOHN
"Django-John" has so far recorded one great album of Gypsy-jazz, but informs me another's on the way! "After You've Gone" features David Grisman, Darrel Anger, Raul Reynoso, & others...

KOHLER, WEDELI

LAFERTIN, FAPY
Consistently great Gypsy-guitarist.

LAGRENE, BIRELI

LARSEN, JON
An ambassador & pioneer of all things Gypsy-jazz. Has the greatest Gypsy record-label in the history of the world! Fascinating collaboration with Vertavo String Quartet on CD "Vertavo"...

MOERMAN, FRANCIS-ALFRED
Though I've only heard 1 CD from this wonderful gypsy-guitarist, I can say that of all the gypsy-players out there, Francis sounds more like the great Matelot Ferrett than any other...This site is in French, so if you want to read it in English, you might want to use Alta Vista's Translation Site.

MORENO

It don't come much better than this. No-one passionate about Django-style playing should be without the CD's Moreno Bolero, Yochka, & Romano Baschepen!

REINHARDT, DJANGO
The spirit of his music permeates every one of my radio-shows...the patriarch of Gypsy-jazz....

REINHARDT, LULU

REYNOSO, RAUL
Entertaining Hot-club album from the States, Raul is one hell of a guitarist (and writer). Features great clarinet playing from Bob Reitmeier...You can buy the CD from this site...

ROBIN, THIERRY
One of my favourite tracks of all-time is to be found on this Oud-player/Guitarist's CD "Gitans". "Hommage to Matelot" which also features Francis Alfred-Moerman is just that - a most exquisite & befitting hommage.

ROMANE

ROSENBERG, JIMMY (Sinti, Gypsy Boys etc)
Virtuoso gypsy-guitarist at the age of 9 months. Well, almost...His album "Sinti" (Sony) is almost too fast, but still well-worth having.

ROSENBERG, STOCHELO (The Rosenberg Trio)

ROUSSIN, DIDIER (Paris Musette)

SAUSSOIS, PATRICK

WEISS, HANS'CHE
