The all-acoustic ensemble Jazz Gitan (pronounced J'tawn) is high energy hot gypsy jazz. They perform a modern variant of 1930-1940’s Django Reinhardt-inspired music.

Composer and lead guitarist Don Price mixes original compositions with the Parisian Jazz influence.

The acoustic jazz ensemble, Jazz Gitan, has a straightforward agenda: to keep the spirit of Gypsy jazz alive and expanding in today’s musical universe. The virtuosic trio (sometimes foursome), offers up a newly minted sound, influenced by the classic Hot Club of France, yet wholly contemporary. Founded by guitarist Don Price, the band performs dynamic and lyrical arrangements of both Gypsy jazz standards and original compositions that draw upon diverse international rhythms and musical idioms. With Giorgi Khokhobashvili on virtuoso violin, and Darrell Fernandez on double bass, Jazz Gitan is dedicated to expanding the boundaries of a vital musical genre.

Don Price and Jazz Gitan have performed along side players such as Richard Smith, Frank Vignola, Robin Nolan, Rhythm Future, John Jorgenson,Stochelo Rosenberg, and for many regional Music Festivals including Djangofest (which Don helped promoter Nick Lehr begin back in 2001).

With three CD's under their belt, the title track from the first CD, "Djangit", was featured on Hot Club Records magnificient collection of the latest Django influenced musicians from around the world, called "Django Festival 9."  Album purchases are available from CD Baby and from Djangobooks.com
