Moto: good food and great music by candle-light

We had a fantastic evening last night lstening to some good ol' Gypsy Jazz at Moto until midnight. Guitarist Matthew Avedon, Jay Sanford on Bass, played in the style of legendary Gypsy Guitarist Django Reinhardt along side Guitarist Joel V. Beaver (of the Lower Eastside Hot Club). Beaver studied with guitar master Stephane Wrembel who scored Bistro Fada the theme to Woody Allen's 2012 Academy Award winning film Midnight in Paris. Remember Wrembel performing live during this year’s Oscar’s telecast? French-born guitarist/composer Stephane Wrembel learned his craft among the Gypsies at campsites in the French countryside. Now Brooklyn-based, he is one of the most original guitar voices in contemporary music.

I don't have a recording from last night's transcendent performance by Avedon, Beaver and Sanford at Moto, so here are a couple of great YouTube video's of Wrembel playing Bistro Fada from Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris.
