AWIL 242 - Latchepen

 Gypsy Jazz masters, Latchepen on this A World in London! Click here:

London four-piece band Latchepen debuted in our studio at SOAS Radio this week, dashing through a repertoire of 20th century classics by Django Reinhardt, Serge Gainsbourg, and their own kick-ass compositions, with astonishing musicianship & dazzling dexterity! Matt Holborn, Kourosh Kanani, Simon Read, and Jeremie Coullon supplied the essential ingredients for this true Gypsy Jazz workout, on violin, guitars, and double-bass, with oodles of swing! Not a toe stood still in the house, so check out Latchepen’s excellent album – ‘Love Letters’ – and take your dancing shoes to their next gigs in the capital, at Verdi – Royal Albert Hall on Dec 1st, and Quecumbar on Dec 10th!
