When I was casting about for a European special guest to invite to Django in June this year, I called upon Sylvia Rushbrooke for her recommendation. As the owner of London’s premier Gypsy Jazz club, the QuecumBar, she has worked with just about everyone by now and has seen them from every side of the stage. It was she who suggested we invite Lollo Meier who, frankly, I had never heard of.
A quick visit to his website and a few more inquiries from people in the know convinced me that having Lollo would be a real treat and I’m so please he has agreed to join us this year for a clinic and concert. A Sinti himself, he has not just learned, but lived the Gypsy Jazz tradition in his native Holland alongside the likes of Fapy Lafertin and Stochelo Rosenberg. Please join us for this special opportunity to learn from and listen to one of Europe’s best contemporary GJ players in this, his first visit to the U.S.
