Teo Collori & Momento Cigano

Duration: 1 h 10 min

Guitarist Teo Collori formed Momento Cigano (initially a trio comprising two guitars and an upright bass), a band noted for its unique take on gypsy swing, soon after graduating in jazz from the Carinthian State Conservatory in Klagenfurt in 2010. Collori proficiently translates the vibrant and danceable style of jazz – developed jointly by Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli before World War II – into original compositions rich with imaginative scoring solutions and inspired solo flights. The band has so far released three albums: Hot Club Piran (2015), Kamerato muzikante (2018) and Molto Aligatore (2019).

In an inflationary number of groups worldwide that are copying, replicating or using the repertoire of The Quintet of the Hot Club of France Teo Collori presents his own music just reminding us of that sound. The presence of clarinet associates with the Django's (Reinhardt) quartet without Grappelli, and in his case, I find a successful contribution to the sound of an ensemble with strings. The partner collaboration of Collori and violinist Krečič is original and enviable in both performance and arrangement. Collori creates music that invites the audience to feel and experience, not just listen. His approach to his guitar gives me pleasure and inspires respect.
