Support the recording of the second album of Steven Reinhardt, the young French Gipsy guitar prodigy.


The project

"I grew in a family of musicians. It's a tradition, generations after generations.

I started with learning piano with my father at the age of 5. Then my grand father Jim Ways taught me the basis of guitar playing, when I was 6. A few years later My uncle Angelo Debarre helped me improve my performing.

A lot of work and many concerts with great musicians, that's what took me to where I am now..."


With his first album called L'Esprit Manouche, Steven Reinhardt proved that one can both be "classical" and "modern". While he was playing in a hyper classical trio line up, with Yannick Bouchikki (rythm guitar) and Antoine Abed (bass), he succeeded in delivering in 2014 twelve creations that were all fresher than the others! A first album quite simple but already so unique!



His new band, which is a quartet with the saxophone player Alban Chapelle, is a proof that this first album was not a stroke of luck! This Steven Reinhardt really has talent.

This new band provides us Gipsy Swing music, more like a classic retro American jazz. It's a real wonder to hear them, even if these frist recordings we present here have been done "on the fly", meaning in harsh conditions for the performers.

Listening to Steven Reinhardt's music, it seems like you are hearing some of those great themes that became immedite universal classics! Not retro, neither modern, just magic!



Steven asked to Mathieu Dantec, audio engineer who recorded his first album, to realise this second record. He is the personn who presenting this wonderful project to you right now.
