I am really happy to share this Gypsy jazz video I recorded with John Wheatcroft in October 2016.
This is one of my favourite tunes and I enjoyed playing it with John tremendously.
John used to be my teacher back in 2010 and it’s a big honour to be performing with him, looking forward to more!
The video was made by the guys at Big Baggy Bounce Studios in West London, who did such a great job!
Hope you enjoyed this little video!
I will post soon another video with John where we play “Djangology” by Django Reinhardt, so watch this space!
Here’s some info about John:
