Bring together the best string players in the Belgian jazz scene and you get Les Violons

de Bruxelles! All around the world, the music of Django Reinhardt is celebrated, copied,

immortalised and revived. Sometimes betrayed even. The most usual way to form an

orchestra is to imitate the set-up of the legendary Hot Club de France Quintet, that is a

violin, a solo guitar, one or two rhythm guitars, and a doublebass. Les Violons De

Bruxelles re-imagine this almost sacred formula. The doublebass stays, but for the rest

the traditional set-up is turned around: just one guitar and…three violins. The presence of

these violins tints their interplay with polyphonic colours, but also supplies the soloist with

subtle and uplifting comping, harmonically as well as rhythmically. Furthermore, the

contrasting personalities of the three violinists allow a multitude of styles, emotions and

swing to flourish. A fresh and original take on the string orchestra!
