French Hot Jazz with Gypsy influences, Avalon Jazz Band is the ambassador of vocal French swing in the United States and the world. The musical style presented by Avalon Jazz Band is inspired by the sort of jazz played in Paris in the 1930x and 40s, especially by the Hot Club de France, founded by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli, whose repertoire consisted of original music and jazz standards. This French style of hot jazz then became what we now know as “Gypsy jazz” or “Jazz Manouche,” with its technical bravadoes and virtuoso skills, embodied by the quick fingers of Avolon violinist Adrien Chevalier.
The delicate voice and swing phrasing of Tatiana Eva-Marie bring the zazou element to the mix: an ingenuous and mischievous joie-de-vivre, which she incarnates to perfection. “One of the finest rising jazz vocalists,” – Vanity Fair
