Gypsy jazz has been strong in recent years, with mant great recordings. Guitarist Birelli Legrene is one of the leading practitioners -- although his amazing talents extend beyond the genre and instrument (he can give the best Jaco Pastorius imitation you'll ever hear). He was scheduled to play this weekend with Tony DiFrancesco at the Iridium in New York, but had to cancel because of some visa issues. Stepping in is Larry Coryell.
