2017 release.

With the release of Samoreau, the Sydney-born/Berlin based violinist and composer Daniel Weltlinger concludes his trilogy of recordings celebrating the musical legacy of the influential Belgian-born French Manouche guitarist/composer Django Reinhardt, the first European instrumentalist to make significant and lasting contributions to the jazz canon.

The album follows Weltlinger’s critically acclaimed recording ‘Koblenz’ which received a 5-Star review in Downbeat and was among the recordings hailed as “masterpieces” in its list of the Best Albums of 2015. Samoreau is dedicated to Reinhardt’s international legion of fans and showcases 11 Weltlinger compositions influenced by the enduring Gypsy Swing or ‘Manouche’ musical style Reinhardt pioneered in the 1930s, which continues to inspire musicians and resonate with audiences around the world today.

The album is more guitar heavy than the two more orchestral leaning recordings that preceded it, as Weltlinger is joined on the recording by members of the Reinhardt family including the acclaimed guitarist Lulo Reinhardt from Koblenz, Germany, as well as four of Lulo’s nephews who are also all guitarists. Two member’s of Lulo’s Latin-Swing Band in which Weltlinger also performs appear as well.
