Jazz Time: Celebrate the Gypsy King

Saturday is Gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt’s 100th birthday. Remember the Woody Allen film “Sweet and Lowdown”? The character Sean Penn played was obsessed with this genius of the six strings. Forget about that Guitar Hero on your Wii at home; Django is the genuine article.

Two shows celebrate Reinhardt’s life on Saturday night. Check out one or both. The Djangofest starts at the Folly Theatre, where Mark O’Connor’s Hot Swing holds forth starting at 8 (a Q&A precedes the concert at 7PM).
