Stéphane Wrembel was born in Paris, raised in Fontainebleau, the home of French Impressionism and guitar legend Django Reinhardt.

It’s the perfect dual influence that Stéphane embraces, taking the Romani master’s creativity and pushing it forward. His six recordings under the “Django Experiment” banner are thrilling displays of Reinhardt originals and his own spirited swing and gorgeous ballads.

Wrembel and his band take up camp this Thursday at 7 p.m. in a special feel-good performance at The Jazz Gallery in New York. Watch the concert, hosted by Lezlie Harrison, on our Facebook page — or right here, at wbgo.org.

In jazz radio, great announcers are distinguished by their ability to convey the spontaneity and passion of the music. Gary Walker is such an announcer, and his enthusiasm for this music greets WBGO listeners every morning. This winner of the 1996 Gavin Magazine Jazz Radio Personality of the Year award has hosted the morning show each weekday from 5:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. And, by his own admission, he's truly having a great time.
