Stephane Wrembel was born in France and grew up there. For many years he played the music of Django Reinhardt and the gypsies. Later he studied at the Berklee College of Music and has been living in New York City for about 10 years now.
Stephane Wrembel has recorded several CDs and has compiled a method for the gypsy jazz guitar.
If you like to play this kind of music, you should visit Stepahn Wrembel’s homepage http://www.stephanewrembel.com/. There you can find a set of playalong files for gypsy jazz tunes like Minor Swing, All of Me, Nuages, Sweet Georgia Brown and many more. That’s a fantastic resource for learning and practicing gypsy jazz music.
Stephane Wrembel Trio with David Grisman – Gypsy Rumble
In 2008 Stephane Wrembel has recorded his last CD Gypsy Rumble, with David Grisman on mandolin as a special guest. If you like the mandolin playing of David Grisman and gypsy jazz music – then I can recommend this CD for you.
One track from this CD – Big Brother – has been selected by Woody Allen for his movie Vicky Cristina Barcelona. Big Brother is a beautiful slow tune in gypsy jazz style – a tune that I like very much.
There has been a short review of this CD in the mandolin Cafe: http://www.mandolincafe.com/news/publish/mandolins_00980.shtml
A video of this piece is also available at youtube.
