VIPER’S DREAM: Viper’s Dream are a London based acoustic jazz band influenced by the music of Django Reinhardt but a lot more adventurous than most bands in the Gypsy jazz genre including snappy arrangements and originals to keep things fresh.
Tim Robinson – guitar – is one of the most impressive players on the UK scene specializing in Django’s music.
Patrick Naylor – guitar – plays in a number of different contexts including his own (Soundial) quartet.
Alex Keen – double bass – has played with many excellent musicians including Tim Whitehead, Theo Travis and the great George Shearing.
“The best UK guitar players on show”
Review of International Gypsy Guitar Festival in Jazz journal 2013
“Superior Gypsy jazz from this London-based acoustic band. Each performer demonstrates mastery of their instrument. Fresh and ameliorating, lovely from start to finish.”
