The Quecumbar is a small and intimate venue ideal for the performing of small group jazz, particularly if it’s based on acoustic instruments. They have live music most nights, a welcoming atmosphere, great food and the place is a temple to gipsy jazz and the legacy of the great Django Reinhardt. Last night (Sunday 9th September) one of Britain’s finest guitarists, Gary Potter, was joined on stage by two equally astonishing French gipsy guitarists, Aurelien Bouly and Ritary Gaguenetti.
Normally there would now follow a litany of superlatives but time permits me only to say that it was a fantastic night, and that the same group are on again tonight, Monday 10th September. It will be a great gig, well worth attending.
