Massimo Valvasori - Gypsy Guitar Enrico Zanella - Gypsy Guitar Alessandro Arcuri - Upright Bass Also featuring: Angelo Adamo - Chromatic Harp Sergio Marchesini - Accordion Nicola Marsilio - Clarinet and Bass Clarinet Gypsy Jazz, gypsy swing, swing manouche, parisian swing, hot club music... these are all names referring to an extraordinary musical style that rose to fame during the thirtes, especially in France, when the musical genius of guitarist Django Reinhardt, gave birth to a new sound that blended the sheer stamina of gypsy music, with jazz's finesse. The relentless rhythm section, with guitar and upright bass, the sophisticated melodies, the frequent virtuoso passages are this music's main elements, and it's such as this that it's presented nowadays, with it's original appeal still intact. Oncle Archibald were born in Padua in late 2005; after a few line-up changes, the band settled on a tipycally Gypsy 'two guitars and an upright bass' set. That set, though, is often enriched by many different guest, ranging from Sergio Marchesini on accordion, to Angelo Adamo on chromatic harp. Their live exhibitions take place both on the road, as they did in various Italian Buskers Festivals, in theaters, and at important national jazz festivals (like Veneto Jazz) and jazz clubs (such as the Hopfen&Co. And the Mama's Club).
