The Note for Note music series presents the Alfonso Ponticelli & Swing Gitan performing their vibrant, upbeat and passionate blend of American Jazz, Gypsy jazz, Flamenco and world folk music. Band leader Ponticelli invites some of Chicago’s top talent for musical conversation and an always lively dose of some of the best spontaneous co-arranging. Inspired by the 1930's style of musician Django Reinhardt, Ponticelli has collaborated with many Chicago institutions for 14 years to present the great culture of the Roma/Gypsy people through music with his annual Chicago Gypsy Jazz festival.
