Gypsy Jazz on the Rock
Stephane Grappelli and Django Reinhardt invented the gypsy jazz sound in France in the 1930s. It has been described by New York's Arthur's Tavern as "a type of jazz music where improvised melody lines, usually played on the guitar or violin, are backed by an acoustic guitar that provides the distinctive, quick swing rhythm."

Thanks to the Shelter Island Friends of Music, Tim Kliphuis, a violinist, and Jimmy Grant, a guitarist, will recreate the gypsy jazz sounds of Grappelli and Reinhardt, as well as music from Bach and Paganini, on Saturday at 3 p.m. at the Shelter Island Presbyterian church.

Donations to the free performance will be welcomed.
