"Jazz with a French Twist"

Isabelle Magidson-vocals/ guitar/ washboard

Special Guests: Sam Rocha - bass
                           Jeff Sanford - clarinet

Jazz.., France has a long history with this American art form. From smoky Paris jazz clubs to the streets of New Orleans, the music pulsates with its own individual sound.
Duo Gadjo presents their interpretation of this music as a union of two cultures. Jeff is originally from San Francisco and Isabelle is French.
Duo Gadjo accompany themselves on guitars, and sing in both French and English.Their repertoire includes many standards from the American Songbook, but also some swinging Louisiana Blues featuring Jeff on slide guitar and Isabelle on washboard. Jeff and Isabelle also perform with the Hot Club of San Francisco.

Description:
“The Storytelling Bluesman”

WINNER OF THE 2014 BLUES MUSIC AWARD FOR ACOUSTIC ARTIST OF THE YEAR and BEST ACOUSTIC ALBUM "There's A Time"

"The masterful MacLeod............one of the most talented country bluesmen we've got… In the tradition of songwriters such as J.B. Lenoir, Brownie McGhee, and Lightnin' Hopkins, he writes about what he lives...the total package: songs, voice and guitar playing." - Blues Revue

“Strong singer...impeccable guitarist...songs haunt you long afterwards.” - Jazz Times

Doug MacLeod is one of the last remaining bluesmen who learned from the old masters, lived the music, survived the life and carries forward that valuable tradition. Within the blues world, MacLeod is known for his superb songwriting, guitar wizardry, warm soulful vocals, wit and unforgettable live performances. At the heart of this is his knack for storytelling, bringing characters—from the faceless to the legendary—to strikingly real life.

While he developed his rich, soulful voice MacLeod also worked out a unique, unorthodox and powerfully rhythmic acoustic guitar style, tempered by his early years as a blues bass player and honed by his subsequent journeys into jazz and electric blues. His distinct style of playing was a byproduct of pent-up rage from his turbulent childhood and the segregation drama in his new home of St. Louis.
Eventually he channeled it through his National guitar, using his relentless right hand to pound out an insistent, churning beat to complement his intricate bottleneck and fingerstyle technique.

MacLeod’s playing landed him sideman gigs with Smith, Big Joe Turner, Pee Wee Crayton, Eddie ‘Cleanhead’ Vinson, Lowell Fulson and Big Mama Thornton.
