    Diknu Schneeberger Trio- Hot Gypsy Jazz

    Diknu Schneeberger Trio-Moonflower Here’s an example of a video that has a lot of views (50,000+) but was still difficult to locate (in other words, it didn’t just jump out as I was digging for vids). The playing here by the trio of guitarist Diknu Schneeberger, guitarist Martin Spitzer, and bassist Joschi Schneeberger is no less than fantastic… I’m sure the folks hearing this live at the club (somewhere in Germany?) were beyond thrilled. But who are these guys? Once again, the YouTube […]

    August Rex: Flaming Tune

    Here’s something a little different. Guitarist August Rex has put together a video which also features not only his solo guitar playing, but backing tracks which also includes another lead guitar, a rhythm guitar and bass. (hey, he’s probably playing it all!) Very nice gypsy/ South American style playing here that is more melodic than anything which is something a lot of you here will really appreciate. Here’s what August wrote in and said about his stuff: Hi theree! I […]

    Jimmy Rosenberg and “The Gypsy Kids”

    By Miche Archetto: Here is Jimmy Rosenberg when he was about 9 years old, playing with Falko Reinhart and Sani van Mullum in a Dutch gipsy camp. They were featured as “The Gipsy Kids” in a documentary of Channel 4 in 1990. The full documentary is available on youtube, but unfortunately only in French and in Dutch. This is what I’ve found about Jimmy on wikipedia : “Joseph (Jimmy) Rosenberg (born 10 April 1980 in Helmond) is a Sinto-Romani guitarist from Netherlands, known for his virtuoso […]
