From their website:   “The award winning Ameranouche (pronounced uh-Mare-uh-noosh) is the premier gypsy jazz trio in the United States and a veteran of the Newport Jazz Festival. The name is derived from two words: American and Manouche, the gypsy tribe of guitarist Django Reinhardt. The rip-roaring ensemble is a super force of hot acoustic jazz, mixed with soul, flamenco, and bebop influences. Played on traditional French jazz guitars, the music is rhythmic, vigorous, and elegant. Whether they’re playing a musette waltz from 1930 or a funk-inspired original tune, Ameranouche is the sound of gypsy jazz in the 21st century.”
