Parisienne Swing (The Great Chefs of Europe) is a highly professional and sophisticated gypsy jazz ensemble offering a stylish continental-infused repertoire to soothe or swing your venue.
They play jazz that makes you feel as though you’ve just entered a hip Parisian basement club
A group who are easy on the eye, and even more pleasing to the ear, their sumptuous repertoire features an original mix of gypsy jazz, flamenco inspired originals and east European melodies. Parisienne Swing is able to tone it down or spice it up, with a repertoire full of classic gems and contemporary Latin grooves.
Driven along by the rhythm section of Jen Hawley on guitar and Rob Mahoney on double bass, Parisienne Swing feature the brilliant guitar of Martin Elepans and the beautiful soaring violin of Mathew Arnold. Main features of every Parisienne Swing gig are Jen and Martin’s fine singing of standards and original songs, hauntingly atmospheric mood pieces as well as fiery up-tempo instrumental passages. Performances without vocals are also an option.
Parisienne Swing is cooking up a storm!
