Swing Noire invokes the energy of a swingin' jazz club, transporting audiences back to the early days of jazz with their unique take on Gypsy Jazz, also known as Hot Swing. They play in the tradition of Django Reinhardt & The Quintet of the Hot Club of France. "The Reinhardt acolytes genuinely channel American Hot Jazz, evoking images of smoky basement speakeasies and s linky cabarets" says Dan Bolles of Seven Days.
Vermont's hottest acoustic Hot Club style quartet, Swing Noire makes music that “will entrance and surprise you.” If you haven't heard this music (especially live) you are in for a treat. Great energy, soul, sophistication, and improvisation are the hallmarks of a Swing Noire performance. According to Jennifer Crowell, of First Night Burlington, “In a time when good jazz groups are hard to find, Swing Noire rises to the top as one of the best jazz groups playing around Burlington. …Swing Noire brings you into those smoky clubs of days past, makes you feel jazz the way it was meant to be felt, full of emotion and energy.”
Violinist David Gusakov, twins R ob and Jim McCuen on guitar and double bass, and guitarist Jim Stout make up the tight acoustic quartet. Swing Noire has performed at the Burlington Discover Jazz Festival, Burlington's First Night Celebration, The Town Hall Theater in Middlebury, Chandler Center for the Arts in Randolph, and many other venues throughout New England and Vermont.
