Duved Dunayevsky is an emerging artist whose “voice” is clearly his own, and yet strikingly reminiscent of Django Reinhardt’s.
The Duved Dunayevsky Quartet made a big impression on their Birmingham Jazz festival debut last year. Israeli guitarist Duved spend his teens playing jazz fusion before discovering the music of Django Reinhardt. In 2015 he moved to Paris, leading Duved’s Hot Five and Duved’s Pre-Bop Orchestra. His quartet is a swing jazz group focussing on the original sound of Django and the Hot Club with an international line-up of Australian bassist Leigh Barker, Oxford-born violinist Joanna Gardner and Vermonter Nick Sansone on rhythm guitar.
