Stemming from the Hot Club style of 1930's Paris, the Chris Maunders Trio pay homage to Gypsy Jazz giants Django Reinhardt, Stephane Grappelli, Tchan Tchou Vidal and more.
Put together by Melbourne based chromatic harmonica player Chris Maunders, the group's stella lineup of musicians have a unique blend of instrumentation as they bounce through energetic tunes composed in the 20's and 30's, complementing melodies and song forms from a period where popular music embraced the characteristics of the musician.
