The New York Times said: "Perhaps the most creative improviser in Gypsy jazz today, Mr. Wrembel plays the guitar with a rich and colorful lyricism.".
Stephane Wrembel is one of the most highly regarded guitarists in the world specializing in the style of legendary composer/guitarist Django Reinhardt; he learned his craft among the Gypsies at campsites in the French countryside. He has had a remarkable career, touring the world, while releasing 16 albums under his name and the nom de plume, The Django Experiment. His original compositions have been featured in Woody Allen’s Vicki Cristina Barcelona (“Big Brother”) and Midnight in Paris (“Bistro Fada”). He contributed the original score for Rifkin’s Festival (starring Wallace Shawn, Gina Gershon and Christophe Waltz) released on January 28, 2022. In October of 2019, Wrembel released the highly regarded Django L’Impressionniste, featuring 17 of Reinhardt’s preludes for solo guitar, followed by a book of his transcriptions in April of 2021.
Since 2003, Wrembel has produced the Django a Gogo Festival, bringing together some of the finest musicians in the world to celebrate the Sinti guitar style to perform in prestigious venues such as Carnegie Hall and The Town Hall. His program, Django New Orleans, recently sold out 8 shows at Dizzy’s Club at Jazz at Lincoln Center. His new program, Shades of Django, will be presented in PACs around the country in the fall of 2022, including 2 nights in the Rose Theater at Jazz at Lincoln Center.
