The Barrett Brothers
Inspired by the music of Django Reinhardt, The Barrett Brothers bring their own energetic and infectious take on Gypsy Jazz. They tackle the intricacies of the genre’s jaw-dropping techniques and pace with apparent ease.
Their repertoire spans a wealth of Reinhardt greats, including Nuàges, Minor Swing and Dark Eyes (brought to a wider consciousness more recently by Johnny Depp in the film Chocolat) to Dave Brubeck’s Blue Rondo á la Turk and Paul Desmond’s Take 5. Alongside original compositions, such as the bossa nova Millie Bug, works by J.S. Bach and The Beatles are also given a Gypsy twist.
Audiences can sit back, relax and enjoy the brothers perform or get up and dance to the toe-tapping, energetic rhythms of bebop, swing, Latin, waltz and tango-infused jazz.
The Barrett Brothers play The Mall, Sutton Coldfield at 12:30pm and Le Truc at 9pm on Friday 5th
