Beso Negro has an all-star lineup of internationally experienced musicians who have brought drive and passion to Gypsy Jazz. Taking the hint dropped by the likes of The Pogues, Gogol Bordello and Flogging Molly, Beso Negro has transformed a genre that has stagnated into a vibrant new beast. Darker, faster, more danceable, more blues, more Gypsy, Beso Negro's indelible fingerprint brings Jazz Manouche to a new generation and to the 21st century.
Javier Jimenez of Madrid adroitly conjures the ghost of Django with his phenomenal guitar playing. Adam Roach's vocals are singular, soulful and penetrating. Steve Gardner's fiddle playing is fluid and dark. Cheyenne's Bass drives the beat hard. One night with Beso Negro and you will understand what is means to get the "Black Kiss".
