Add to Calendar 2014-07-26 7:30 pm 2014-07-26 Dorado Schmitt and the Django All-Stars at MIM Music Theater No one has done more to ignite contemporary interest in the idiom than dazzling French guitarist and violinist Dorado Schmitt. Born to Gypsy parents near the German border in Lorraine, France, Dorado Schmitt was weaned on traditional Roma music and Gypsy jazz, but rebelled as a teenager by taking up electric guitar and emulating Jimi Hendrix and Carlos Santana. Schmitt started coming to the United States in 2002 and has been a star attraction at major festivals. He has stolen the show at several of the annual Django Reinhardt New York Festivals at Birdland, and his legendary status has earned him ambassadorial roles to the jazz world, performing alongside Oscar Peterson, Paquito D’Rivera, George Benson, and James Carter. Dorado Schmitt now stands as one of the most respected and in-demand gypsy jazz artists in the world. MIM Music Theater, 4725 East Mayo Boulevard false MM/DD/YYYY
