Works by Biel Ballester and Django Reinhardt

“This is the closest I will ever get to playing with Django Reinhardt.” Those were the words of Woody Allen after sharing a stage with the musician and choosing two of his numbers to include in his film “Vicky Cristina Barcelona”. Born on Mallorca, Biel Ballester is, in fact, a prodigious reincarnation of the Belgian guitarist who revolutionised the world of European jazz alongside the violinist Stéphane Grapelli and the Hot Club de France in the second half of the last century. However, his music is not a repetition of the manouche style that provided the credentials for gipsy jazz, but rather an updated version of those classical coordinates. The United States, London and Japan have already recognised the value of that music, as have the readers of Jaç magazine, who have given him the award for best artist of the year. The opportunity to see him in action, accompanied by the double bass player Leo Hipaucha, is not to be missed.
