Gypsy Jazz full of character, with a modern twist. Inspired by the legendary Django Reinhardt and other great musicians, Parisien takes you on a complete and unique Gypsy Jazz experience with melodic themes and catchy rhythms. The repertoire consists of Gypsy Swing classics with their own interpretations and modern compositions from various music genres such as Latin, Bossa Nova, Bepop and Rumba. The trio has a particularly dynamic interaction and is known for its professional and solid performances. They play straight from the heart and tell the story. You hear that and you feel it.
Parisien was founded in 2001 and is led by guitar virtuoso Don Vink. His (fast) solos are performed with great finesse and sensitivity. With his endless endurance, rhythm guitarist Pascal Theune ensures a tight and authentic Gypsy rhythm. The characteristic swing is created by the sharply timed and flowing bass lines of bass player Govert Veltkamp. Parisien has given concerts at (international) jazz festivals such as the famous Django Reinhardt Festival (FR), Amsterdam Uitmarkt, Django Festival Hildesheim (DE) and the famous North Sea Jazz festival.
Parisien’s latest album, “Paradiso,” was released in April, 2018. Feel the energy of the swinging tracks Moorea, Paquito, Night and Day, Blue Bossa and Hallelujah I Love Her So. Or let yourself be carried away with the melodic and sensitive ballads Bolero Triste, Speak Softly love and I Wonder Who’s Kissing Her Now.
