We want Joshua Bell to play a Gypsy Jazz concert with Aaron Walker and Friends (additional artists TBD once Joshua agrees to this awesome idea).
#1. We know he would really enjoy playing the music and increasing his knowledge of another form and approach to music.
#2. We know his fans would really enjoy hearing him stretch his influence into another genre.
#3. Many of the great Gypsy Jazz violinists come from a classical rather than a fiddling background - Stephane Grapelli, Tim Kliphuis, Leah Zeger, Ben Powell etc.
#4. There is a more classically influenced vein of Gypsy Jazz as seen in the music of artists such as Gonzalo Bergara that Joshua would really enjoy. These veins of Gypsy Jazz would really benefit from Joshua's input.
