Gypsy Jazz Takes Center Stage at Tralf

By Joyce Kryszak

Buffalo, NY – An old music form is getting plenty of new attention. Gypsy jazz was created and made famous by guitarist Django Reinhardt. And today, musicians, such as the local jazz quartet, Babik are giving rebirth to the popular sound. But the music isn't just popular in Buffalo. Guitarist Kruno Spisic and his ensemble have been busy spreading gypsy jazz all over the U.S., Canada, Europe and Japan. And, Friday night, Kruno will join Babik on stage at the Tralf for an international evening of gypsy jazz.

WBFO's Joyce Kryszak talked with Kruno about the resurgence of the music.
