Gypsy Jazz in Pawling

The Pawling Concert Series will present the Rhythm Future Quartet, a gypsy jazz group, on Friday, November 17. The concert will be held at 8:00 p.m. at the Gardiner Theater on the Trinity-Pawling School campus. The concert is presented in tribute to the late Bob Morini, a longtime supporter of the Concert Series. Tickets are available at the door, at the Book Cove in Pawling Village, and online at Adult tickets are $30; children 12 and under are admitted without charge.

The Rhythm Future Quartet is named for a song created by Django Reinhardt, the Belgian-born, Romani jazz guitarist and composer who came to worldwide fame in Paris in the 1930’s. Rhythm Future’s goal is to keep the spirit of Gypsy jazz alive and expanding in today’s musical universe. The virtuosic foursome – two guitars, violin and bass – presents a sound influenced by the classic Hot Club of France yet fully contemporary. The quartet performs arrangements of both Gypsy jazz standards and original compositions.

The Pawling Concert Series is presented, in part, with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the NY State Legislature, and through funding from Dutchess Tourism, administered by Arts Mid-Hudson. In addition, this series has been generously underwritten by: Andron Construction, Castagna Realty, Joseph Meunier & Sons, and Joe Pietryka Inc.
