An intimate cafe such as East Village is the perfect setting for Hot Club de Watsone, a gypsy jazz quartet playing here tonight. For those unfamiliar with the genre, gypsy jazz is an acoustic style that combines elements of Flamenco, American Swing, and Parisian Musette. It was popularized by the unequaled jazz guitarist Djengo Reinhart in pre-war France, and modern enthusiasts still prefer to play in close quarters. With an accordian, acoustic guitar, upright bass and violin, Hot Club de Watsone is set to take its audience to a days past, satisfying the tortured artist in all of us. [MF]
