The Del Mar Foundation presents The John Jorgenson Quartet at the Del Mar Powerhouse

The John Jorgenson Quartet

On Friday, Nov. 8, the Del Mar Foundation’s Cultural Arts Committee presents The John Jorgenson Quartet, featuring Grammy-winning guitarist John Jorgenson at the Del Mar Powerhouse. The evening showcases Gypsy jazz: the dynamic blend of swing, French café music, and Gypsy melody created by guitarist Django Reinhardt and violinist Stephane Grappelli in 1930s Paris.

The John Jorgenson Quartet is the only American act to ever headline the prestigious Django Reinhardt Memorial Festival in France. For the films “Gattica” and “Head in the Clouds” Jorgenson was tapped to recreate Django’s music, and in the latter he appeared onscreen as Django with Charlize Theron and Penelope Cruz.

Jorgenson’s career has spanned many musical styles. First coming to national attention in the mid-’80s with the acclaimed country-rock act The Desert Rose Band, Jorgenson has recorded or performed with such diverse artists as Bonnie Raitt, Bob Seger, Sting, Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan, Luciano Pavarotti, Benny Goodman, and Barbara Streisand. Elton John invited Jorgenson to join his band in 1994 for an 18 month tour that stretched into a six-year stint of touring, recording and TV appearances.

General admission seating ($20) may be purchased at  www.delmarfoundation.org/jjq.html. A limited number of tickets are still available.  For more information, visit www.delmarfoundation.org.
